With these muffins, you don’t have to give up good taste to be good. You get the sunny, citrusy flavor of oranges and zesty cranberries, with none of the fat — or guilt. Genius.

Fat Free Cranberry Orange Muffin : 5 Reviews

This is the best!


Bought this for a 'quick fix' on Easter morning (having family over for breakfast).....what a HUGE mistake. The muffins turned out heavy, globby, rubber like cakes that stuck to the paper liners. I live at 5300 feet, and did the added flour adjustment for high altitude. This was the one bread item I was to serve with the rest of the meal. I should have made my planned coffee cake!! I am an excellent cook, and usually make everything from scratch. What is up with this mix????
