Whole Orange and Poppyseed Muffins with Almond and Chia Seeds

This is a variation of the 30 second whole orange cupcakes as I wanted to sneak in some extra nutrition with the boys eating it too. The extra stuff in it doesn’t make this in ’30 seconds’ anymore but it’s still very quick and easy!! 🙂

Whole Orange and Poppyseed Muffins with Almond and Chia Seeds

Print Recipe


  • 40 grams almonds
  • 1 x whole orange (cut into quarters)
  • 250 grams butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 200 grams sugar
  • 330 grams self raising flour
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds



Preheat oven to 180 degrees.


Add muffin cases to muffin tray (or if using silicon muffin trays, cases are optional - I didn't use cases for the mini muffins as they are for the boys).


Place almonds in bowl and blitz - 10 seconds/Speed 9. Set aside.


Place orange and butter into bowl and mix - 7 seconds/Speed 8. Scrape down and mix 15 seconds/Speed 8.


Add all remaining ingredients including set aside blitzed almonds and mix 30 seconds/Speed 8 (using a spatula to mix through the top and push the mixture down).


Spoon mixture into muffin trays. Bake mini muffins for 10 - 15 minutes and big muffins for 20 - 25 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.


Serve with sifted icing sugar on top.
