I had read about the pros of adding the entire orange, which I had never heard of. I expiremented and added the entire oranges(pre-washed): do NOT do this. The pith in the peel makes the baked result have a very bitter aftertaste. I also didn't think these were that moist.

Ok. I figure it's about time I post a review on this recipe. I've made it about 7 times now. I absolutely love this recipe. This first time I made it, I pretty much stuck with the recipe except I couldn't find any oatbran at our local store, so I made it by grinding whole oats and bran cereal together. Since then I've done a little experimenting and have added more raisins plus about a cup of walnuts. I've also added about two teaspoons of orange extract and a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice. I also took out the buttermilk and added half and half and it was still really good. These muffins are so moist and I love the rich, hearty flavor of the wheat,flax, oats and bran altogether being lightly sweetened with brown sugar and orange juice. Thanks for this recipe that I will keep making for as long as I bake!

I used whole wheat flour in place of wheat bran & added 1/2 C. chopped walnuts, but followed the rest of the recipe. I made 10 Texas-size muffins that cooked in exactly 25 mins. Moist and delicious. I will make this again.
