Orange Pomegranate Muffins

I’m experimenting with muffins again, this could get dangerous! Turns out I have a knack for muffins, who knew? Anyway, the kids have been bugging me to make orange muffins for quite sometime, I finally caved and whipped up a batch, they were good, but they were missing something…. I wasn’t quite sure what until I saw a juicy pomegranate (my new favorite fruit!). I made another batch of the orange muffins and added some pomegranate seeds in them and the combination was fantastic, I’m so in love with these muffins!

      LOL! My husband rolled his eyes when I changed it so it’s awesome to have someone affirm my decision πŸ˜‰

    Mmmm these look so good. I love the taste of pomegranates but I so rarely eat them so these muffins would be perfect. Thank you for linking at the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. Hope to see you again next week.
