I practically lived on Costco muffins when I was a teenager! If I wasn’t eating beef jerky, Taco Bell or Cup O Noodle I was eating Costco muffins. And then I would wash it all down with Mountain Dew. I know, how am I still alive!?!?!

Luckily, somewhere along the way I realized I needed to actually consume food with some form of nutrients. But those Almond Poppy Seed Muffins are still one of my guilty pleasures. Now I make them at home and homemade means healthy… right? Right!?!?

For the great almond flavor I used my Rodelle Pure Almond Extract. I may or may not be completely obsessed with Almond Extract lately.

    These look delicious! Can you prepare the batter the night before and refrigerate? If so, will I need to adjust the baking time?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Erica. I have never tried letting the batter sit overnight so I cannot say for sure. I would imagine that it would change the consistency and affect the baking as all the ingredients would be cold.

  2. My favorite!!!! Love this!

  3. Rebecca says:

    I tried making this recipe this mmorning and they turned out really salty and way to almond-y. Plus they were really dense and didn’t brown on the top. I don’t cook with sea salt a lot so if I make these again I will use a different salt.

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Sorry for your trouble, Rebecca. I included a note at the bottom of the recipe about decreasing the almond extract for a more mild version. Plus, I find that extract can vary in intensity quite a bit. If using regular table salt decrease by at least half as it is much saltier tasting than sea salt. Thanks for the feedback and happy holidays!
