Description

Easy Almond Orange Muffins. A mix of flour and ground almonds, cane sugar, vegetable oil, egg, orange juice and zest make these muffins a delectable treat.


Ingredients

  • 50 g almonds, coarsely ground
  • 50 g cane sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 40 g peanut oil (or any other vegetable oil)
  • 1 organic orange, the zest and juice
  • 100 g type 0 flour
  • 6 g baking powder
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180° C (355° F) and line a muffin pan with 8 muffin liners.
  2. Grind the almonds in a mixer with a teaspoon of sugar taken from the total (I like to keep a fairly coarse ground for texture, you can choose to grind them finer).
  3. In a small bowl beat the egg with the sugar until foamy.
  4. Add the vegetable oil, slowly, and stir to combine.
  5. Grate the orange zest in, then add the orange juice. Mix to combine.
  6. In a large bowl, sift the flour with the baking powder and pinch of salt. Add the ground almonds and stir.
  7. Pour the wet ingredients in the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir with a wooden spoon just until combine. Do not overmix.
  8. Add a couple of tablespoons of batter in each muffin liner.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until nice and golden and a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  10. Let cool slightly in the muffin pan, then finish cooling on a rack.
  11. Dust with powdered (icing) sugar and enjoy one right away 🙂 .

Notes

I used peanut oil, you can use any vegetable oil you like or a light olive oil.

You can use almond flour but I like the coarser texture of the ground almonds.
