Orange Power!

Today's recipe is all things orange. Orange sweet potatoes and orange oranges make the ultimate orange muffins. Jam packed with healthy vitamins, they will give you that "pow" in the morning that will carry you throughout your day. I was inspired to try a citrus spiked sweet potato recipe after seeing this one on Pinterest. I adapted the recipe to make my own version.

Making them in the blender makes preparation and clean up all the easier.

Sweet Potato Orange Blender Muffins
makes 12 muffins
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup mashed cooked sweet potato
2 oranges, peeled
1 tbsp. orange zest (from the oranges)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and oil a 12 hole muffin pan. Combine all the dry ingredients into a high powered blender. Blend for about 45 seconds. Add the remaining ingredients to the blender. Blend until everything is combined. Divide the batter between the prepared muffin holes bake for 22 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow the muffins to sit in the pan for five minutes before trying to remove.
