Tangy Orange Juice Muffins (Diabetic)

I love oranges, orange juice, orange oil (great for polishing furniture!) and just the smell. It always puts me in a fall, Christmas mood. I experienced the most wonderful thing this year at Christmas - REAL LIVE FLORIDA ORANGES! My aunt's sister, Connie, lives in FLA and has an orange tree. They are so different from the "brought ons" (what my dad calls things like the crunchy tomatoes in December) that the grocery store has. Sometimes around here, though, we get good home-grown stuff. Anyway, I still have about three left and I am going to absolutely cherish every one down to the last peel, which I'll probably freeze for later use. (Thanks for the tip in the frugal thread!) These muffins are great and really need no butter or jam, just a great cup of hot tea.
