- 1⁄2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- 1⁄2 cup grapeseed oil or 1⁄2 cup olive oil
- 2 whole eggs, beaten (for even less cholesterol) or 3 egg whites (for even less cholesterol)
- 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1⁄3 cup soymilk or 1⁄3 cup plain yogurt

- Bake for approx 20 minutes or until lightly golden.

Not good totally tasted of baking powder and soda also orange was overwhelming. Error on this recipe because it doesn't say when to add brown sugar I totally forgot and had to dump batter out of cups and add it.
I chose this recipe for the Oz/NZ Regional Tour. I loved the flavor of these muffins...orange and just a hint of chocolate. Wonderful combination! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
