Equipment

Notes

  • The equipment section above includes affiliate links to things I use often in my kitchen and recommend.
  • Store muffins in an airtight container and consume within three days. 
  • Almond meal can generally be used in place of almond flour if that’s all you have/can find. However almond flour is much finer and the almonds are blanched before being ground up so it may lead to a slightly different final product. I use the spoon and level method for measuring. 
  • I used my favorite bittersweet (60%) chocolate chips for these but you can sub your favorite, or even use cacao nibs to keep the added sugar lower.
