These muffins are made with almond meal and oat flour, two good-for-you grains that also happen to be delicious. We've talked about making your own almond meal; sometimes it's a lot cheaper to buy whole blanched almonds and grind them yourself. But Trader Joe's also has good prices on almond meal and other nut flours.
Then these muffins get a gooey center of figs mashed to a paste and cooked until tender. The muffins are sweetened with honey and moistened with skim milk.
We are suckers for anything with figs and almonds just sweeten the deal.
