The flavor profile of these Rosemary-Pine Nut Muffins is sooo special. There’s a lot going on; and all of the flavors go beautifully together: pine nuts, rosemary, vanilla, cocoa butter~ so yum and lovely!! Pine nuts! I recommend Trader Joe’s for sourcing if you have one nearby. They have the best price. Cocoa butter. Lovely fat!! This ingredient adds a great texture and flavor nuance to the muffins.

  1. These are lovely! So many beautiful components, love all of that cocoa butter and all of the savory goodness.

    1. Hi Gail, yes, you can! I haven’t made that substitution, so I can’t be sure on the quantity. But you can try it 1:1 to start and see how they turn out. My instinct is that you may need to pull back a bit on the almond flour because it’s not as moist as the flax: so maybe 1/4 cup almond flour. Best!
