Almond Orange Marmalade Muffins

I made almond orange marmalade muffins this morning in lieu of banana bread and they were so yummy. I based them on an old recipe I had from Smuckers with several alterations. By the way, Smuckers is wishy-washy about whether/which jams, marmalades, and jellies are gluten-free. Make your own or buy a brand you trust. If you have any information or experience with Smuckers products, feel free to leave a comment!

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup gf orange marmalade

4 Tablespoons of butter, melted

2 eggs, beaten

3/4 cup milk

1 teaspoon almond extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tin with paper liners. In a medium bowl, combine the flours, ground almonds, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt, and sugar. In a separate bowl, combine 2 beaten eggs, milk, almond extract, marmalade, and melted butter. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Spoon into muffin tin about 2/3 full. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
