  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup wheat germ, divided
  • 2 large eggs

Preparation

1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a muffin pan with paper muffin cups. Sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt into a bowl; stir in 3/4 cup wheat germ, and set aside.
2  In a large bowl, combine eggs, milk, juice, sugar and oil. Add dry ingredients all at once and stir lightly until liquid is absorbed; batter will be lumpy.
3 Stir in orange zest and 3/4 cup almonds. Divide batter among muffin cups and sprinkle tops with remaining almonds and wheat germ.
4 Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from pan and let cool. Serve with almond butter, Benecol Ò , Take Control Ò , or soy-based “cream cheese.”
5 To roast slivered, chopped or sliced almonds : Spread in an ungreased baking pan. Place in 350ºF oven and bake 5 to 6 minutes or until golden brown and fragrant; stir once or twice to assure even browning
6 Note that almonds will continue to roast slightly after removing from oven.
