1 ¾ cup All Purpose Flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ cup oil
¾ cup milk
¼ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
2 tsp pure orange extract
For folding in:
½ cup almonds
½ cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
1 ½ cups fresh strawberries, chopped
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.
In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well till the whole batter comes together. (Too much stirring/mixing will result in muffins that are too dense/heavy.)
Fold in the strawberries, chocolate chips and almonds. Spoon the batter and place in each paper-lined muffin cup till it is two-thirds full.
Bake for 25 minutes or so till the tops are nice and brown or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffin comes out clean.
This recipe yields 12 muffins.
