Muffin Love {Muffin Monday}

Good morning! It's Muffin Monday après le Super Bowl. How about some Gluten-Free Almond Crunch Muffins to help you over your grease-laden, alcohol-induced slump...

Gluten-Free Almond Crunch Muffins

Normally my interest would be piqued at the mention of well-built men in tights, but football has never had that effect. Basketball, tennis, rugby, YEAH! Football...MEH. 

Doesn't mean I get to escape it, however. And with it comes a lot of noise, greasy food and alcohol-laden drinks. I'm guessing a few of you could use a bit of healthy this morning (or afternoon, depending on when you crawl out of bed).

Gluten-Free Almond Crunch Muffins

These Gluten-Free Almond Crunch Muffins are quick, easy, tasty and healthy by muffin standards. If you're like me and love all things almond, you will enjoy these. Feel free to top them off with additional almonds just before popping them in the oven, for added crunch. You can even add dried fruits, if that's your thing - it's not mine. Once out of the oven, I drizzled the tops of my still-warm muffins with a bit of cinnamon honey. YUM!!

Muffins have a reputation for being the less attractive sibling of the cupcake. So, why not give them a little makeover for Valentine's Day? Top them with a little whipped maple topping and a heart for that special someone aaaand...TOUCH DOWN!

Gluten-Free Almond Crunch Muffins

Let's call these Gluten-Free Almond Crunch Muffins the Lawrence Taylor of muffins. Guaranteed to get you past that imaginary line of scrimmage, away from the mean linesmen trying to throw you to the ground before throwing themselves on you for an all-out tussle. Bodies writhing, limbs flailing, heavy breathing... hmmm... this is starting to sound a little hot, actually. ;)

Okay, clearly I know very little about the game, so I'll just stop making references right here and turn your attention back to these delicious breakfast bites. 

Imaginary lines and linesmen aside, these Gluten-Free Almond Crunch Muffins will make a great start to your Monday. GOAL!(oh, wait, that's the other football)
