Before you start making your delicious muffins, take note of some tips that can help you achieve the perfect muffins.

To arrive at your desired texture, be sure to mix wet and dry ingredients separately before finally combining them. Be careful not overmix the batter as this results in a tough and crumbly product. To avoid getting your muffins sticking on the pans, be sure to grease the muffin pans generously before filling the batter in. Alternatively, you may just spray the pans with a non-stick cooking spray.



  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup toasted almonds, sliced
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil or almond oil
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Additional chopped almonds

Preheat oven to 400*F. Have ready 12 greased or paper-lined standard-size muffin cups.

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; also add the almonds. In another bowl, combine the milk, oil, and egg; add this to the flour mixture until it's a moistened mass. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 of the batter and the cocoa powder. Spoon the plain batter evenly into one side of the muffin cups and add the chocolate batter to the other side. Gently marbleize the batter and sprinkle with additional almonds. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm, dusted with powdered sugar.
