Christmas Morning Almond Muffins

I tried another version of the Xmas morning muffins, this time with almond flour, for those who can’t have coconut. The texture was quite different, but still very good.

  • 2 cups ground almonds
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon or mixed spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 eggs
  • 8 Tbs (100gm, 4oz) butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 4 Tbs honey
  • 4 Tbs juice from an orange
  • Grated zest of the orange
  • ½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
  • 1 cup frozen cranberries
Line a 12 muffin pan with patty pans. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, baking soda and spices.  Stir in cranberries. Blend together eggs, butter or oil, orange juice, honey, salt and zest.  Mix the two together. Pour batter into muffin pans. Bake at 350° for about 20 minutes. If the tops start to get too brown, cover with some brown paper or foil. Cool and serve.
