What You'll Need
  • 3 large french shallots, finely sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot flour
  • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp ground flax + 6 tbsp water)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • juice of a whole lemon
  • zest of a whole lemon
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 zucchini, grated
  • 1 handful basil, roughly cut
  • 1 bunch of chives, roughly cut (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon sumac
  • 1 teaspoon beetroot powder
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
  2. Heat oil in a wide pan and add French shallots. Let cook over a medium heat until shallots are starting to catch on the bottom of the pan. Add 1/2 tsp water and continue to cook until onions turn golden brown and caramelise. Set aside.
  3. Mix almond meal, brown rice flour, arrowroot flour, bicarb soda, baking powder, flax eggs, water, coconut oil, and lemon zest and juice until lumps-free. Then add tomatoes, zucchini, basil, chives, sumac and beet powder and mix until combined. Make sure the zucchini is evenly mixed throughout the flour and not sticking together in clumps.
  4. Evenly scoop mix into an oiled muffin tin. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes. Knife should come out clean and top crust should be golden brown. Let cool slightly then carefully remove muffins from tins with a spoon and place on a cooling rack until ready to eat.

These muffins, sadly, did not work out for me. I followed the recipe completely and didn’t replace any ingredients. The inside is very soggy and the outside almost burned! A very strange outcome and disappointed as Food52 has been one of my main go-to sites for recipes.
