Orange Almond Pulp Muffins
There's no such thing as too many muffin recipes! Whether it's for a breakfast on the go or an afternoon snack, they're always great to have around. If you have leftover almond pulp after making almond milk, try adding it to your next batch of muffins! These muffins are soft and slightly tangy, and the secret is in the way the baking soda reacts to the orange juice in the batter. Try the same thing with lemon juice for lemon muffins! For a stronger almond flavour, replace the coconut oil in this recipe with almond butter - the results will be just as delicious!
