I love these muffins because they have a ton of almond flavor. The muffins are dense and moist and make both a great breakfast, or a tasty treat. Enjoy them any time of day.

How to Make Almond Butter Muffins

To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Line a standard muffin pan with paper cupcake liners. Set it aside for now.

In your mixing bowl, combine the almond butter, eggs and maple syrup. Mix to combine.

Add in the remaining ingredients and mix to combine – be sure to scrape the bowl with a rubber spatula to get all of the ingredients mixed well.

Note: this batter will be very thick, more like a cookie dough.

Scoop the batter into your prepared muffin pan. Bake the muffins for 14-16 minutes or until they just test done when a wooden skewer or pick is inserted in the center.

Do not over bake these muffins.

Transfer the muffins to a cooling rack and cool. Enjoy warm or room temperature.

Try these with some chocolate chips mixed in the batter!

Every time I make these muffins, they vanish in no time. I love taking them to potlucks and get-togethers because I never have any left to bring home.

I recommend making a double batch of these, so that you can freeze some for another day.
