We’re leaving in a couple of weeks for a Disney cruise and while I’m super excited to go I’m not looking forward to donning a swim suit immediately after the holiday season. Yikes! The good news is that I can still eat almost everything I love without out feeling guilty.  I just need to make a few modifications 🙂

These orange muffins kinda freaked me out with how good they were. I took one of my favorite “traditional” muffins recipe and swapped in some Greek yogurt and coconut oil for less healthier ingredients. The result was stunning.

These muffins are more moist, more delicious, and WAY more fabulous than the original recipe. I love the brightness that the orange zest adds to these incredibly tender muffins. Bryce devoured, DEVOURED three of these while I was taking the pics.
