When I saw this recipe for Skinny Orange Muffins, I clicked on it. When I noticed coconut oil was an ingredient, I almost laughed at the "skinny" tagline - you know how I feel about that yucky stuff.
And so, I modified this recipe for Administrative Professionals Day. I used canola oil, replaced half the sugar with Splenda, used egg substitute (because my eggs were gone), and added 1/2 tsp of orange extract. Like that, these muffins are 144 calories, which is at the high, high upper range of what I consider to be "skinny."
Put the glaze on it, and these are not skinny. But, you can really do with about a quarter of the glaze she calls for. I did that, brushing it on instead of pouring it, and my co-workers loved them! I may add a bit more orange extract next time - up to 1 tsp - because I love orange/citrus-y things. Mr. Higgins enjoyed these without the glaze and they are super moist due to the yogurt.
I'll keep my modified version!
