Chocolate Almond Muffins
A quick and simple recipe for delicious Chocolate Almond Muffins.
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp. almond extract
- 1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 2/3 cup sliced almonds, divided
Preheat the oven to 400° F. Grease 12 muffin tins, or line with baking cups.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, salt and 1/3 cup slice almonds.
In a (separate) large bowl, whisk together the milk, almond extract, oil, and the egg. Add the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Do not overstir.
Fill the muffin cups 2/3 full. Sprinkle the top of each muffin with a pinch of sliced almonds. Pat down lightly so that they stick to the batter.
Bake 18 – 22 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Do not overbake.
