Increase the erythritol to 3/4 cup if you are looking to satisfy a very sweet tooth, otherwise the recipe has a nice balance of bitter orange and sweet - perfect with lashings of butter!

 

Making the Orange Puree

Making the day before is a good option. On the day is fine too - just allow enough time for oranges to cool.

  • Use organic oranges if you can find them to avoid chemical residue in the peel.
  • Place oranges in a saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil.
  • Reduce the heat, cover and simmer until oranges are soft when pierced with a knife.
  • Drain and leave to cool then cut oranges in half and remove any seeds.
  • Once cool, add to a blender or food processor and process until oranges are a smooth puree.
  • Store in the fridge until ready to make muffins or use straight away.
  • Tip: if you have more than 400g of puree freeze the extra for next time.

 

Making the Muffins
  • Grease a 12 hole muffin tray with butter, or line with paper cups.
  • Preheat the oven the 180 degrees c.
  • Beat the eggs then mix in the orange puree.
  • Combine the almond meal *, baking soda and erythritol, then add to the eggs and fold through.
  • Spoon into the muffin tray or paper cups and place in the preheated oven.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes. 
  • Serve hot with butter. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
     

 

* Almond meal can be made at home if you have a blender or grinder. I prefer to make my own as I can be sure it is fresh - and it is cheaper too.
1 cup of almonds will make about 1 and 1/4 cups of almond meal. 


Difference betweeen almond flour and almond meal.

Almond flour is made by grinding blanched almonds to a meal (without the skin). Almond meal is ground raw almonds (with the skin). Almond flour is lower in fibre than almond meal and gives a lighter product with baking. But either can be used. Beware or store bought almond flour that has gone rancid (the smell is a give away).
