Making muffins is one of my favorite things to do in the kitchen. I’ve always loved citrus baked goods, and these orange muffins are a popular recipe. I recently made these for a potluck style gathering, and they vanished in minutes!

These orange muffins have a nice texture, without being overly “eggy” as many paleo muffin recipes can be.

To make these paleo Orange Muffins you will need:

  • almond flour
  • baking soda
  • baking powder
  • fine sea salt
  • oranges
  • eggs
  • vanilla extract
  • honey
  • ghee (or coconut oil)
  • muffin pans
  • muffin paper liners
  • mixing bowls
  • whisk
  • muffin scoop

To begin, you’ll line a couple muffin pans with paper liners. This recipe makes about 18 standard sized muffins, so you will need more than one pan. Set them aside for now.

You aren’t done with the oranges yet.

Juice 1/4 c of fresh juice from one (or both) of the oranges. You may only need one to do this, depending upon how juicy your oranges are. Add the juice to the eggs, along with the honey, melted ghee and vanilla extract.

Whisk them all together and then add that to your dry ingredients. Mix them all together until combined.

Scoop the batter into your prepared muffin pans, and bake the muffins for 20-25 minutes.

The muffins will be done with they are lightly golden on top, and test as done when a wooden pick is inserted in the center and comes out clean.
