Orange Cranberry Wheat Germ Muffins

I just made these this evening they were quite yummy. Granted it’s nothing like Panera Bread’s Orange Cranberry scone but way more healthier and better than nothing at all!! ;-) And I just realized I took of picture of the muffin I poked a hole in. Oh well…


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup raw wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 large eggs
  • Cooking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 7 ingredients (through nutmeg) in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Make a well in center of mixture.
  3. Combine brown sugar, oil, rind, juice, and eggs; stir with a whisk. Add egg mixture to flour mixture; stir just until combined. Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 17 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched in center.
Since I made adjustments to the recipe you might want to check the original version out here.
