Whole wheat Orange Muffins !【No Sugar. No Butter.】



Have you ever tried an orange muffin? I love the juicy texture! This recipe using the fresh 1 whole orange, so the muffins have a fresh taste!  It’s so easy to get fresh orange zest to add a ton of flavor to these muffins.

These muffins aren’t overly sweet. Oligo syrup is key to getting a gentle sweetness and light texture, so this muffin is chewy and tasty! It matches exquisitely.

Bifidobacteria have been already well known as probiotics.Increasing human bifidobacterium and adjusting gastrointestinal function.Oligosaccharide is included in the Oligo syrup.Oligosaccharide has the effect of growing bifidobacteria. And That has low calories than sugar. I recommend you to use this Oligo syrup!
