Desert rose muffins
A while ago I posted the recipe of Desert Rose cookies, do you remember?
Those cookies are so delicious and satisfying that I decided to try and make Desert rose cookies in muffin form too: the experiment was definitely successful!!
I basically used the same ingredients: corn flakes, almond flour and butter. Then I added some raisins to give these muffins more flavour but you can totally skip them or use chocolate chips instead :)
I hope you'll give it a try.
1 egg (room temperature)
75g all purpose flour
75g granulated sugar
8g baking powder
75g soft butter*
75g almond flour
75g greek yogurt*
40g corn flakes
50g raisins or chocolate chips
--- TOPPINGS ---
Soak raisins in warm water for 15-20 minutes (you can skip this step if you are using chocolate chips).
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and prepare your muffin tin with 8 paper cups.
In a bowl add all purpose flour, almond flour and baking powder. Mix with a hand whisk and leave it aside.
In another bowl whisk together eggs and sugar with the electric mixer until light and foamy (about 2 minutes).
Add soft butter and yogurt and keep whisking until creamy.
Leave the mixer and add gradually the flour mixture; mix with a rubber spatula until combined.
Finally add the raisins (well drained!) or the chocolate chips and stir until incorporated (do not over-mix the batter).
Transfer the batter in the prepared muffin tin filling them up to 3/4.
Sprinkle the surface with corn flakes and bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean.
Let them cool completely before sprinkling with confectioners' sugar and serving.
You can substitute butter with oil (60g).
You can substitute greek yogurt with regular yogurt or ricotta cheese or mascarpone.
If you make it let me know! :)
