Mini Mandarin & Almond Muffins

My Momma has a mandarin tree that is overladen with scrummy mandarins. I played around with this recipe last week to find an additional use for them. This recipe only took me a couple of attempts to get it right which meant I used a few extra mandarins.


I am looking for upsides at the moment and one of the upsides to lockdown is that I will have time to potter in the kitchen. The kitchen is another one of my happy places.


These little morsels and very tempting and they also freeze well so they are perfect for school lunch boxes!
