Recipe type: Breakfast, Snack
Serves: 12 muffins
Ingredients
  • 1 scant cup almond pulp (the amount leftover from making almond milk from 1 cup of raw almonds)
  • 8 oz. almond yogurt, unsweetened
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup agave nectar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 flax eggs (2 Tbsp flaxmeal + 5 Tbsp water)
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • ¾ cup oat flour
  • ¼ cup sorghum flour
  • ¼ cup potato starch
  • ¼ cup tapioca starch
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp pink Himalayan salt
  • *optional: top with cinnamon granola or other topping of choice
Instructions
  1. Prepare the flax eggs and set aside to congeal for 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350˚F and set out the muffin pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oat flour, sorghum flour, tapioca starch, potato starch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond pulp, agave, yogurt, applesauce, vanilla, chia seeds, and flax eggs.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and using a spatula or wooden spoon, stir until just combined.
  6. Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, divide the batter into the muffin pan.
  7. If topping the muffins with granola, sprinkle granola lightly across the tops of the muffin cups filled with batter. If not using granola, immediately place the muffin pan in the oven.
  8. Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown on the edges and a tooth pick comes out cleanly.
  9. Remove the pan from the oven and set the pan on a cooling rack for 5-7 minutes.
  10. Remove the muffins from the pan and cool completely on the cooling rack.
