Prep and Cooking Time – 25 minutes | Serves – makes 12 mini muffins

INGREDIENTS

– 80g butter, cubed
– 4 egg whites (approximately 120g)
– 1 teaspoon vanilla essence / extract
– 130g almond meal
– 3 Tablespoons self-raising flour
– 90g caster sugar
– Extra virgin olive oil spray for greasing

METHOD

Preheat oven to 200°C and grease a 12 mini-muffin tray.

Melt butter in the TM bowl 40 sec / 50°C / speed 4. Scrape the sides of the bowl.

Add egg whites and vanilla essence to the melted butter and mix 10 sec / speed 4. Scrape the sides of the bowl again.

Add almond meal, self-raising flour and caster sugar to the TM bowl and mix 10 sec / speed 5. Your mixture should have the consistency of thick pancake batter. If this is not the case, add a small egg white.

Spoon the mixture into your greased mini-muffin tray and bake for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes turn off the oven but continue to let the muffins cook in the oven for a further 5 minutes before removing and letting it cool completely on a wire rack.
