Baking again.

So, I was searching for recipes the other day that use my newest favourite - almond flour.  

I found a great site - Comfy Belly.

She had this amazing recipe for Chocolate Muffins.

It called to me.

So, I gathered the ingredients. 

I mixed up the batter.  (Note - I used a combination of sugar and honey for my muffins... and I also used half of the sweetener that the recipe called for.)

Poured batter into the cute little muffin cups.

I wish you could've smelled them.

Seriously.  So good.  Ask my sister.  She ate one.  (And btw Heather, I think there might be one left in your van.  ;)  You should rescue it.  Unless you found it already.  :D  )

I added instant coffee and cinnamon.  Coffee just enhances the chocolate flavour, so  I added two heaping tablespoons to the batter.  And, I also put in about a tsp. of cinnamon... because I like cinnamon.  ;)

I also was going to make Cinnamon Cookies that day... but the batter wasn't holding together (totally my fault, I think I missed a step or something), so I turned it into cinnamon muffins.  They're good, too.

If you haven't already, you need to give almond flour a try.


  1. Seriously. SO good. The texture was amazing, it like melted in your mouth..and the chocolaty, cinnamon flavour, divine!!

    And the abandoned muffin was found, and taken care of. Burp.

  2. That sounds like it would go good with any wine *hint hint*

  3. HA!

    Rachel is funny. XD

    Those did look and smell amazing. I should have yoinked one when we were there! :D

    Deliciousness. MMMMMM.

  4. Wowza! These look great; and it's so nice to see a mom with such a large family that still finds time to bake for her loves ones.
