Citrus Olive Oil Muffins
1/4 cup high-quality olive oil
1/2 teaspoon (heaping) citrus zest

2 tablespoon citrus juice
1/3 + 1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/3 cup slivered almonds
toasted powdered sugar for serving (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350Ë? and place 4 cupcake liners in 4 cups in a muffin pan.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and citrus zests of your choice. Add the sugar, almond extract, egg white, milk and citrus juice. Whisk the liquid ingredients together very well. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and slivered almonds. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry and stir until just combined. Divide the batter between the 4 muffin cups and bake on the center rack in the oven for 16-18 minutes. Test with a toothpick for donenessâ??cupcakes should be moist with some crumbs clinging to the toothpick. Let cool, dust with powdered sugar and serve.
