Gluten-Free Olive Oil Muffins

 

PREP TIME                                     COOK TIME

10 minutes                                       20 Minutes

TOTAL TIME

30 minutes

SERVINGS: 6-8 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons Nuvo extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for the pan
  • 2 cups almond flour (very finely ground almonds)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries and/or walnuts or dried fruit

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Grease 6 to 8 wells of a standard muffin pan with a little oil, or line the wells with paper baking cups.
  2. Use a fork to whisk together the almond flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a mixing bowl.
  3. Combine the eggs, the 2 tablespoons of oil, the vanilla extract and yogurt in a separate bowl. Gently stir that mixture into the flour mixture; the batter will be fairly stiff. Gently fold in the fruit and/or nuts.
  4. Divide the batter evenly among the 6 to 8 wells, filling them almost to the brim. Bake for 5 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees; bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the muffins are lightly golden and thoroughly dry on top.
  5. Transfer the muffins to a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.

RECIPE NOTES

The baked, cooled muffins can be frozen for up to 1 month, wrapped individually in plastic wrap and sealed in a zip-top bag.

Two brothers, Josh and Nate, fought hard to keep their 125-year-old and family owned olive orchard. After succeeding, they worked relentlessly to learn the business as well as being great stewards of Mother Earth by taking great care of their trees. This paid off, as the olives are giving back and each bottle the brothers produced has won an international award. The latest is a GOLD AWARD at the 2018 NYIOOC (largest olive oil competition in the world) for their Early Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Both brothers are highly committed to bringing you the very best, all 100% natural olive oils from farm to your table - all made right here in the USA.
