Chocolate, almond and plum muffins


Come back to post a recipe later four months of silence it's difficult, breaking the ice has never been one of my best qualities. In recent months I have cooked very little and experimented even less. So I understood that dedicating myself to cooking is only possible for me when my head is light and, over the years, even when it is below 28°C outside.
It was an unusual summer, no holidays, a lot of concern for my cat's health, a heat that was truly unbearable on some days but also a bit of the Rimini sea and a couple of romantic weekends.

I have summarized these months in two lines because I want to leave them behind. And, as in a kind of superstitious ritual, I picked up sugar and flour again just at the start of Septemberthus letting go of all the expectations I had placed in the past summer.
In my mind it should have given me much more and instead it imprisoned me in a cage of anxiety and inability to manage emotions. I think that moving away from the blog and even a little from social media was a well-thought-out decision. I tried to realign myself and even though I still have many pending questions I certainly managed to focus a little more on myself.

To return I therefore prepared a couple of recipes. The first is this, gods chocolate and almond flour muffins, decorated with yellow plums, a color combo perfectly in line with September. I had these muffins in my head for a while, from a photo saved on Pinterest a long time ago and which, thanks to the newfound time, I recovered for the occasion.

In the ten years of blogging, after the August break, I have always returned with something simple to say goodbye to summer.
There were, in no particular order:
i rye biscuits
i stuffed mushrooms
l’barley pasta
Today I'll be back with chocolate, almond and yellow plum muffins.

Happy cooking!

Chocolate, almond and plum muffins

30 g of wholemeal flour
2 eggs at room temperature
3 small yellow plums
70 g of brown sugar
75 g 70% chocolate
5 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 pinch of salt

1 tablespoon acacia honey

Preheat the oven to 180º C.

Melt the chopped chocolate in a bain-marie, add the olive oil and set aside.

In a bowl, combine the almond flour, wholemeal flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

Whip the eggs and sugar in the planetary mixer or with an electric whisk until you obtain a light and fluffy mixture. Stir in the melted chocolate and flour mixture until combined.

Pour the mixture into 5cm diameter muffin molds and place half a plum on top of each muffin with the cut side facing up. Place in the oven and cook for approximately 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and lightly brush the plum slices with honey.
