Mandarin Muffins

It is finally orange season and I must say that mandarins are my FAVE!  Such sweet tarts in a little circle(ish).  In a fruit salad, on top of a green salad, by themselves, or in a recipe… Halo Mandarin Oranges are perfect!  I was excited to be given the task of creating a yummy recipe using the Halo Oranges as part of this sponsored campaign on behalf of Halos!

Halo Mandarin Orange

Mandarins are Mother Nature’s perfect snack. And Halos™ are the perfect mandarins – sweet, juicy, seedless, and easy for little hands to peel. Even better, these li’l guys are 100% California born and raised, and absolutely, positively non-GMO. So every Halos mandarin is pure and delicious, just as nature intended.

Head to your local store and pick up some Halos so that you can make this delicious recipe!

Well I clearly read the ingredients thoroughly and my 4 yr old daughter and I sqeezed 10 Oz of juice and only used the juocešŸ„“ We crossed our fingers as they baked and ended up with super duper moist muffins(actually almost like a cake) with that beautiful subtle taste of mandarin. I also found a hiccup when we got to the butter..did we need to melt the butter or have it room temp?

These made the most delicious breakfast for the family. The kids loved the orange in them as it was unusually. They can't wait till I make them again.

You call for mandarin oranges, drained. I'm confused. If using fresh peeled oranges, what is there to drain? Am I to use canned oranges, and if so is the 10 oz. before or after draining? Thanks! Can't wait to try!

when you chop your oranges into pieces, you are going to get quite a bit of juice - you don't want to include that in the recipe, you want to drain that off :-)
