Orange Banana Muffins Recipe

The other day I was at the grocery store and a lady was looking for something in the spice aisle, but not finding it.  So I offered to help her.  She was looking for orange peel.  As we were looking for it, she started to tell me about these absolutely delicious Orange Banana muffins she makes and then proceeded to tell me all the ingredients and that I “just had to make them“.  So I did!  Thankfully we both found the orange peel!  I told her I would like to credit the recipe and she said to just credit it to the nice lady in the grocery store…

My kids devoured these muffins!  They are really good.  I may try a splash of vanilla next time (I put vanilla in my current banana muffin recipe).  So try it out…and please, let me know what you think!



  1. the orange banana muffins sound yummy! could i use whole wheat flour instead of regular? eggbeaters versus eggs? i don’t want to ruin them but trying to find ways to tweak the recipie a tad. thank you!

    • I haven’t tried it with wheat flour, but I don’t see why you couldn’t. As for the egg beaters, I think you can…but I don’t know for certain.
