These muffins are very moist and are dense compared to normal muffins. They have a very good flavor and my kids really enjoyed them.

Yummy. They were gone before they cooled. Made a few substitutions. Used ground flaxseed in place of almond meal. Oil in place of butter. Birch Xylitol for sugar. (Same amounts)

Really liked the dense texture and combination of flavours! I used ground almonds and white choclate chips, and kept checking to assure myself that the recipe really calls for only 2 tbls of sugar. I think I'd either make these sweeter by adding more sugar, or else leave out the chips and make a more "neutral" muffin - like ~Ri did! With a bit of tweaking, I will certainly make these again. Thank you for sharing!

I made this muffin today. I did not use the chocolate chips instead I just made it an almond cinnamon muffin. I had almond meal here at the house so I used it instead of the powdered milk. They are very dense but I really love the texture of this muffin. I also added some almod extract. I will make this muffin again and next time I might add some white chocolate chips or nuts to it. Great recipe. Thanks :0)
