Making the Healthy Muffins
Making these muffins is so easy that you can whip them up in less than 25 mins. We start off by adding the raw almonds into a food processor. Blend them into a rough powder and then add the rolled oats. We need to be sure to use rolled oats and not the fast cook or 1 min cook oats. The idea is to get a hearty muffin.
Once the almonds are rough chopped (almost powder form, but you can still see a few tiny pieces of almond), add the oats to the blender and pulse a couple of times to allow the oats to break up a bit and mix in with the almonds.
Mix the maple syrup, vegetable oil, and non-dairy milk of choice in a bowl. Pour in the almond and oat mix into the bowl and mix together. Add the salt and unsweetened coconut to the bowl and mix to form a muffin mix.
Line a muffin tray with muffin liners and pour the muffin mix into the liners. Top each one of the muffins with a raw almond.
Baking the Healthy Snack
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake your healthy oat and almond muffins for 10-12 minutes. The baking time always depends on individual ovens. Insert a toothpick and remove. If the toothpick comes out clean, your muffins are ready to be removed from the oven.
Let them cool for a few minutes in the muffin tray. Once cooled you can remove them from the muffin tray and allow them cool completely on a cookie rack.
Storing the Vegan and Gluten Free Muffins
I generally tend to make a double batch of these and keep them in the fridge. They can be stored in an air tight container for up to 1 week in the fridge.
