Thanks to a reader for these delicious gluten-free muffins sweetened with honey. Even those not used to alternative flours will love the extremely moist and tender crumb, thanks to the bananas and dried apricots, which almost melt into the background. A darker honey, such as buckwheat or chestnut, works nicely in this recipe.
- 3 tablespoons butter melted and cooled
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 eggs beaten
- 2 ripe bananas mashed with a fork
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 3 cups almond flour
- 3/4 cup walnuts chopped
- 3/4 cup chopped dried apricots
Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners or butter the muffin tin thoroughly. Mix butter, honey, eggs and bananas together in a large bowl. Stir in baking soda and salt. Stir in almond flour, walnuts and apricots until just combined. Spoon batter into the muffin cups. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until the muffins are firm to the touch and a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
