Muffin Monday-Gluten-Free Chocolate Almond Mini Muffins
Muffins are not the type of breakfast we normally have to start the day. We choose a bowl of porridge with honey as a hearty kick-off the early morning and then often is followed by stacks of pancakes for morning tea.
But perhaps, this will not be harm to try. So, here's my entry for Muffin Monday, hosted by Elena Ho of Experiments.
Gluten-Free Chocolate Almond Mini Muffins
1 cup gluten-free flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2tsps baking powder
1/2tsp baking soda
1/4 cup caster sugar
2tsps milk powder
1/2 cup fresh milk
2 Tbs oil
1 egg, beaten lightly
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 cup roasted whole almonds to top the muffins
icing sugar to sprinkle
Preheat the oven to 220C. Grease two mini muffin pans and sprinkle with extra flour. Tip over the excess. Put all the sifrted dry ingredients in one bowl. Combine the wet ingredients and whisk well. Pour over into the dry ingredients, mix just until combined. Spoon into each pans. Insert each whole roasted almonds. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
