Maple Almond Butter

Ready to wake up to the smell of fresh Maple Almond Butter Muffins? So are we! These one-of-a-kind breakfast treats will instantly turn you into a morning person (a healthy morning person, too!).

The first thing you’ll need to do is preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Once your oven is getting warm and toasty, grab your muffin tin and spray six cups with nonstick spray and set the tin aside. In a medium bowl, mix oat flour, rolled oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder and salt. Place 1/3 cup of unsweetened almond butter in the microwave for 30-45 seconds or until it begins to soften

Once the almond butter is softened, add applesauce, maple syrup, brown sugar, maple extract and an egg. Mix contents thoroughly. When both mixtures are prepared, stir the oat mixture into the almond butter mixture until just moistened. After you’ve finished stirring, evenly pour your new mixture into the six muffin cavities. As you debate dipping your fingers in the batter for a taste, place the muffin tin into the heated oven and bake for 15-18 minutes. Once the muffins are golden brown and inserting a toothpick yields no batter, you’re done!

Allow the muffins to cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling. With just one bite, we’re sure your whole family will fall in love with these Maple Almond Butter Muffins. And best of all? On your Nutrisystem meal plan, each muffin counts as one SmartCarb and two Extras. Don’t forget to log this tasty treat in the NuMi App!
