Orange Spice Muffins

Solar baked muffins make a good grab-and-go breakfast or a marvelous mid-afternoon snack.

Orange Spice Whole Grain Muffins


1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 cup toasted wheat germ

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 teaspoon grated orange zest

2/3 cup milk (2% or whole)

1/3 cup canola or coconut oil

1 large egg, at room temperature


Set Sun Oven out to preheat. Line the indentations of two 6-cup muffin tins with paper liners or arrange 12 sturdy muffin sized baking molds in two baking pans.

In a large bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, wheat germ, baking powder, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and zest. In a small bowl beat together the milk, oil, and egg until blended. Stir the milk mixture into the dry ingredients until just moistened. Spoon batter into prepared cups until about two-thirds full. Bake in the Sun Oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 35 minutes. If you pans do not fit side by side in the Sun Oven use a rack to separate them than cross-stack them (the upper pan will bake slightly faster). Cool muffins in the pans on a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
