Meatless Mondays: Apricot Almond Muffins

These mildly sweet, grain-free muffins are perfect for your gluten free or low-carb diet. The texture of almond meal give these muffins a hearty bite that pairs well with the fruity burst of dried apricots. They make a great on-the-go snack and can easily be dressed up for a dessert occasion. For a change of pace, use our new natural almond meal or try our hazelnut meal for a different flavor combination altogether. We just can’t stop eating these muffins and we fear that you’ll have the same problem at home (so you better hide one for later before your family finds out).
