Funny Little Nutty Muffins

These muffins are "nutty" because they are made exclusively with almond flour.  The almond flour makes them dense, leading to their compact, slightly funny-looking shape.  Accented with pumpkin pie spice, they have a pleasant taste, especially with butter, and they're nicely filling.  Take small bites to really savor the texture. This recipe is adapted from one by George Stella.
  • Non-stick buttery spray
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar or Splenda or 'Just Like Sugar' (found at the Whole Foods)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup club soda


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Spritz the muffin tin with buttery spray.
  • In a bowl, whisk all ingredients together until thoroughly blended.
  • Fill the muffin cups about 2/3 with batter.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let muffins cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the muffin tin.
  • Refrigerate leftovers.
