Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180℃ and line a muffin tray with your paper liners. You can just as well use baking paper squares squished into the tray and set aside
  • To make the muffins we start by making an orange puree by quartering oranges and removing the seeds. Transfer to a food processor blend until its a paste.
  • In a large bowl add the orange paste, all the liquid ingredients and whisk until combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients, almonds and mix until just combined. Do not over mix the batter.
  • Using a tablespoon scoop the batter into the muffin tray evenly and bake for 18-20 mins until risen, golden and tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from the tray and leave to cool on a wire rack.
  • Serve with butter, honey, jam, yogurt or as it is.

Notes

  • Do not over work the batter once the dry ingredients are mixed in.
  • You can top the muffins with some more almonds for an extra crunch.
  • To know if the muffins are baked poke with a tooth pick in the center and it should come out clean once baked.
