I love to take these muffins to Jade's school for breakfast for her classmates to share. One of the ingredients is almond flour, which I love to use for baking because it adds flavor and protein to replace some of the usual white flour. Almond flour also makes the muffins light and nutty and pairs so well with the sweetness of orange juice and zest. Make a batch of these, freeze them, and then reheat as needed in a low oven.

Ingredients

Directions

Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. 

Using a hand mixer on medium speed, in a medium bowl, beat the sugar and eggs together until pale and thick, about 2 minutes. Beat in the orange zest and juice, olive oil, yogurt, vanilla, and almond extract. 

In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose and almond flours, baking powder, and salt. 

In batches, stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture until just blended. Stir in the almonds. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of the batter into the prepared muffin cups. Bake until golden on top and a tester inserted into the center of the muffins comes out with moist crumbs attached, about 20 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for at least 20 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note

To toast sliced almonds, arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven until lightly toasted, 6 to 8 minutes. Let cool completely before using.
