Grand Marnier Cranberry Muffins

Grand Marnier Cranberry Muffins

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Combine the orange juice, the Grand Marnier, and the oil; set aside while you prepare the batter. In a large bowl, combine the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and orange zest. In another bowl, beat the egg whites until frothy. Combine the juice mixture with the beaten egg whites. Add the egg mixture and the cranberries to the flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Using a 1/4 cup measure, divide the batter among 24 muffin cups that have been fitted with paper liners. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown and puffed.
Makes 24

*You can also mince the candied orange peel that they sell around the holidays and substitute several teaspoons of that for the orange zest
