#Recipe: Blood Orange & Dark Chocolate Chip Muffins
Posted Nov 21 2012 1:27am
I’m sure that from the title of this recipe your first instinct was to think “Oh, that’s got Chobani in it!” right? Hehe, I thought so.
It does. Of course. I’ve found that Chobani really is a perfect compliment to so many recipes I love. Especially ones that tend to be a little less friendly to those of us watching our calorie intake. Substituting a cup of Greek yogurt for a cup of cream can mean the difference between 41 grams of saturated fat or not – and several hundred calories. (And roughly half that difference when you substitute it for whole milk.)
I decided to experiment with flavors here and this won…and I’m willing to bet that the next time I make it, adding pistachios will happen. (I’m a huge fan of a cup of blood orange Cho and some pistachios.)
I hope you enjoy them. I’ll be making a glaze for them next time, just to bring out the orange zest just a little bit more. If you haven’t already seen them, don’t forget to check out the recipes for Buttered Pecan Vanilla Cranberry Sauce and Brown Butter Vanilla Pecan Pie I posted yesterday, too. I’m on a Thanksgiving rampage, of course.
I hope you all have a beautifully relaxing and peaceful Thanksgiving! I know that tomorrow will be just another day I’m thankful for everything in my life, including those of you who have supported me. I’m truly grateful.
