Orange Coconut Muffin

I tried the Orange Coconut Muffin from Vaishali's website I made some modifications to the recipe. The muffin came out so well. Since I eat eggs I used one egg instead of egg replacer powder. Here is the link to the original recipe.

(Makes 12 muffins)


1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 cup Whole wheat Pastry flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
3/4 cup orange juice
1/2 Cup Aunt Jemina's Syrup
Zest of 1 orange (set aside 2 tsp or so for the orange glaze)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup water
1.5 cup sweetened shredded coconut

In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, egg replace powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
In a separate bowl, dissolve the egg replacer with the orange juice. Add the agave nectar, orange zest, oil and water
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix together until they are just combined. Do not overmix. Add the coconut and mix in.
Grease a 12-cup mufifn tin and divide the batter equally between the cups.

Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Place on a rack to cool. Unmold after 10 minutes and continue to cool the muffins.

Orange Glaze


1 cup confectioners' sugar (powdered sugar)
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tsp orange zest

Heat the orange juice in a small saucepan until it begins to boil.
Add the powdered sugar and zest and turn off the heat. Whisk together well.
Pour over the cooled or barely-warm muffins.
