Almond Honey Muffins for Fiesta Friday

I have definitely missed all of you here, but it has been great to have 2 weeks of vacation spent with my hubby! It didn’t work out exactly as planned….my sweet hubby spent much of the first week really sick and then the weather made our plans a no-go.  This week though, we got to be out in the woods, camping, reading, talking, swimming, and just relaxing. Here are some pics of our time together….

Today we are back from camping and it is already Fiesta Friday again! And when I thought of what to bring, my mind quickly went to muffins. Have you noticed how many muffin recipes I have created already?…..ya, I like me some muffins! 🙂  As much as I like them though, for some reason it has been quite a while since I have come up with a new recipe for one. So, it is about time right?! 🙂 To check out my other muffin recipes go HERE.

For all of you this week, I decided to just create a simple but delicious recipe- no frills, but tons of taste! In fact, these are so moist and delicious that they may be my new favorite! I absolutely loved them!! ❤

My fellow party goers, make sure to grab one of these before they are all gone! I hope you will love them as much as I do! Breakfast, snack, dessert….go ahead and dig in regardless of the time of day! 🙂

A BIG thank you to  Angie at The Novice Gardener and her co-hosts for making Fiesta Friday happen each and every week!! And now I am off to enjoy the last few days of vacation with my hubby! ❤

  1. Such a beautiful view, Lori! The muffins look good, too. Um, I’ve been meaning to ask you this: you are using so much coconut milk in your muffins [or if I am correct most of your recipes], could you taste the coconut milk in them?? ☺️

    • Thank you my sweet Jhuls friend! ❤ No, I can never taste the coconut milk at all. My hubby hates coconut and he rarely tastes it in anything I make.

  4. We have GF in the house now, so these could be really, really good. Thank you so much for bringing to FF. Enjoy the party, and the weekend. (Hey – your hubby is NEARLY as good looking as mine, but not quite)

    • Thanks Mandi! Hard to say on these particular muffins because we ate them all up within a couple days….I guess that just shows how good they were! 🙂 I would say at least 4 days, maybe up to a week. Just a guess.


  7. Hi Lori. Welcome back from your summer vacation. Great photos! I love this recipe, as I prefer using almond flour and coconut milk in recipes. I will make this weekend for sure! Happy FF!

  15. Gorgeous! . . . both food and scenery that is. And also a handsome couple you and the sweet hubby make! Lori, would you kindly remind me how I am to “send” you my guest post? Do I email the entire text and pictures to you and then you upload? I’m aiming for a post on Thursday, does that sound okay?

  17. Reblogged this on The Seated Cook and commented:
    Loved these! I substituted vanilla extract for almond extract, and almond milk for coconut milk, since used ingredients had on hand. I also just blended the honey into the mix- always looking for short cuts. Still loved how they came out, especially the honey taste!
