If you make your own almond milk, you might wonder what to do with the almond meal after you’ve strained out the milk. Here’s one idea and recipe for you that I came up with this morning. If you make any alterations, please let us all know!
Almond Meal Muffins
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Makes 10 muffins
Mix all of these together in a bowl and let sit for 10 minutes:
1 cup firmly packed almond meal*
½ cup milk (any kind)
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ cup oats (from a gluten-free facility)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup shredded coconut
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
1/3 cup raisins
Put into cupcake pan lined with cupcake holders or else grease well. Sprinkle more cinnamon on top.
Bake for about 27 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

These are non-gluten if you use oats that are processed in a non-gluten facility and there is no added sugar. Good thing I forgot to add any sugar ☺ as it doesn’t need any because of the applesauce and raisins.
