Gluten Free Almond Meal Muffins

Posted by

No sweeteners (These are real muffins, not cupcakes. The Almond Meal actually seems sweet,but may not be as sweet as you’d like. You may want to add a sweetener of choice.) For the holidays, our Cinnful Pecan nut butters go great with these. Pictured were just dropped spoonfuls. If you want them nicer at the top for frosting, shake the mini-muffin pan to even the batter out. We’ve used pumpkin on the inside and topped with our pumpkin seeds & seed butter mixed with agave.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Futters Organic Raw Almond Meal more info
  • 1 tsp. baking powder (no more)
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Directions:

Beat eggs til foamy, blend in nut butter & kefir. Fold egg mixture & melted butter in dry ingredients til blended. Pour in muffin tin or paper. Bake 375º for 10-12 min.
