Desert rose muffins

Updated: Apr 13, 2021

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 ---

  • confectioners' sugar


  1. Soak raisins in warm water for 15-20 minutes (you can skip this step if you are using chocolate chips).

  2. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and prepare your muffin tin with 8 paper cups.

  3. In a bowl add all purpose flour, almond flour and baking powder. Mix with a hand whisk and leave it aside.

  4. In another bowl whisk together eggs and sugar with the electric mixer until light and foamy (about 2 minutes).

  5. Add soft butter and yogurt and keep whisking until creamy.

  6. Leave the mixer and add gradually the flour mixture; mix with a rubber spatula until combined.

  7. Finally add the raisins (well drained!) or the chocolate chips and stir until incorporated (do not over-mix the batter).

  8. Transfer the batter in the prepared muffin tin filling them up to 3/4.

  9. 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.

  10. Let them cool completely before sprinkling with confectioners' sugar and serving.

  11. Enjoy :)


  • 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! :)
