Mandarin Orange Breakfast Bites

Who wants a delicious tasting breakfast all in one bite? Well then you are in luck, because that is exactly what you get with these little bites. I was not only impressed with how easy this was to make but how flavorful it tasted.

Mandarin Orange Breakfast Bites

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 sugar
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup cold butter
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (11 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained and diced


1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, melted

In a large bowl, combine first five ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, and extract. Stir into crumb mixture until moistened. Fold in oranges. Fill greased mini muffin cups two-thirds full.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip tops of warm muffins in melted butter, then in cinnamon sugar.
