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. INGREDIENTS: 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 DIRECTIONS: 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. Enjoy :) RECIPE NOTES: You can substitute butter with oil (60g). You can substitute greek yogurt with regular yogurt or ricotta cheese or mascarpone. RECIPE CARD: If you make it let me know! :)
