optional: sliced almonds and coarse sugar for topping
You can also sub a whole wheat white flour, but whole wheat pastry flour will yield a slightly softer muffin. I did not test these with almond meal but because mainly whole grain flour is used here, almond meal may work. I used this blanched almond flour.
*If you have sweeter tooth, I suggest using 3/4 cup sugar. You can use a dry sweetener of your choice – but subbing honey or maple syrup would affect the rest of the ratios. Using coconut sugar will make the green a little bit darker and less bright green.
**You may sub vanilla extract if needed but the almond extract adds a special hint of flavor.
