Apple Almond Muffins

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Ames Shaps

I had some almond flour (labeled as almond flour/meal) that I wanted to try, but I couldn't find a recipe that was really what I wanted, so I whipped this up patching a bunch of recipes together. Surprisingly, these came out great! If you don't have any almond flour, substitute regular flour. I had some ground nut/sugar/cardamom topping hanging around that I used, but feel free to leave the top bare or add the optional crunch topping listed below.

OUTSTANDING! Incredibly moist, lush, a bit crunchy, simply delicious. I used my silicone muffin cups (for the first time) inside the muffin tin. I suspect these muffins would be lovely without the topping, but with it, these could pass as dessert!
