|The only fats are the walnuts which provide satisfying crunch to a delicious fruit fulfilling treat.|
Thus, I went back to the drawing board and naturally recreated muffins without fresh grated orange zest. Located in the spice aisle, McCormick's makes this great Valencia Orange Peel that comes out in tiny granules. It doesn't overwhelm moist, blissful muffins and strangely enough far sweeter without atrocious bitter taste.
Sweet, irresistible muffins are then topped with a simple coconut milk and orange juice glaze. Banana and walnuts provide all the oils needed. I think my friend will adore these so much more than original failed idea. Recipe makes 12 muffins. It's hard to eat just one.
