Project Healthy House : Orange & Cranberry Muffins

Orange & Cranberry Muffins.

Perfect for a snackly treat at work. Goes well with an afternoon cup of tea.

Ideal for beating the 3pm munchies.

The original recipe is for Orange & Cranberry Bread in a loaf tin, and uses white self-raising flour, but I have used wholemeal self raising instead.

If you are not concerned about participating in Project Healthy House, these would be absolutely delicious with choc chips instead of cranberries... mmm...
