Orange Muffins with Fresh Orange Glaze


I'm proud of myself. I made my first recipe from ABSOTOOT scratch. The result was amazing… Life changing, maybe? I don't know. 

We had like two bags of oranges laying around so obviously I was going to make something with oranges in it… And that I did. 

These babies were so insanely moist that when I cut into one and took a bite it almost seemed underdone, but it wasn't.

That meh friends is just how awesome I am. 

OOOOOOH let's talk about the glaze. I'm pretty positive it's the best part. 

If I was stranded on island for 11 days and could choose one drink, it'd be this glaze. 

Yup. I drank the glaze by spoonful. Don't judge. 

If you were in the same situation I was in, you'd do the same thing. 


AND I worked out and went on a walk today so basically I'm covered. 

Except that I probably shouldn't put another ounce of sugar in my body the rest of the day… 


I ate healthyEEEEEEEEERRRRRR this week, but I've noticed that when I do that, I basically lose control and get wobbly in the knees when I face the temptation of sugar on the weekend. 


I'd rather go eat a muffin. Or two. Or three.
