Orange Almond Muffins
Sonia here. These muffins smelled divine, tasted okay, felt funny. The texture was weird because of the chopped up almonds inside. I think it would have been better if the almonds had been bigger so that you realized you were eating a nut and not have it chopped and mixed all throughout the whole muffin. There were 234 calories per muffin.
Orange Almond Honey Muffins
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup orange juice concentrate
1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/2 cup chopped toasted almonds
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and honey until light. Beat in egg, orange juice concentrate and orange peel. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing until just blended; stir in almonds. Spoon into 8 greased or paper-lined 2-1/2 -inch muffin cups. Bake at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove muffins from pan to wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
