- 2 oranges - 1 large and 1 small (I like to use naval oranges)
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup sweet unsalted butter
- 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- Nutella for frosting
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a muffin pan with regular butter (or if you prefer you can use cupcake liners).
Peel the large orange and put in the blender. Keep the peel on the small orange, cut into quarters and place in the blender (yes, keep the skin on but be sure to remove any stem or seeds). Blend until smooth.
Add egg, vanilla and butter into blender and blend until smooth.
In a large mixing bowl combine dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Take blended mixture and pour it all on top of the dry mixture and combine everything together with a spoon. Add chocolate chips and continue to mix.
Pour mixture evenly into muffin/cupcake cups.
Bake for 20 minutes. Remove. Cool. Frost with Nutella. Serve!
PS - If you are cooking for one I recommend freezing them when they are fresh. They will keep for a month or so. This is obviously a great dessert but it also makes a yummy breakfast or afternoon snack!
