Date Pecan Muffins

On the first day it finally cooled off... I had the sudden urge to get in the kitchen and bake! I had been looking forward to making healthy date pecan muffins (with almond flour!) since the middle of summer, when I read "The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook" by Elana Amsterdam.

As I am sure many of you know, almond flour has amazing health benefits!

Check out the nutritional profile of almonds!

Obviously... so much better than white flour! If you are interested in an interesting read about a brief history of white flour (and what it's missing), check out the article: "What is Missing in White Flour."

These muffins were amazing! And they are high in fiber, manganese, vitamin E, magnesium, tryptophan, copper, potassium, and iron.

I can't wait to try out more almond flour recipes... including ones for Cinnamon Apple Muffins and Pumpkin Pie!


  1. Since I followed Elana's the recipe exactly... I am not going to post the recipe out of respect for her book "The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook." :)
