Muffin Ingredients

Muffin Topping Ingredients


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease muffin cups or line with cupcake liners.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir in remaining ingredients, whisking if needed to break up any clumps of flour.
  3. Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full. (Recipe makes 12 muffins.)
  4. Bake at 375F until golden orange, about 15 to 20 minutes. Check doneness with a toothpick.
  5. Let muffins cool about 5 minutes, just long enough to be able to handle them safely. Dip tops of hot muffins in coconut oil, then into coconut sugar. Serve warm or at room temperature.


For a more intense orange flavor, be sure to add the orange zest. You may also substitute part of the orange juice amount with orange juice concentrate as another way to create a more intense orange flavor if you’d like. I’d recommend one to two teaspoons of orange juice concentrate as part of the ½ cup measurement. (Add concentrate to measuring cup first and then fill with orange juice to ½ cup line.)Inspired by Rodale’s Orange-Honey Muffins recipe
