From The Ultimate Muffin Book. Almond oil is rich in Omega-9 acids and so is a heart-healthy alternative to other fats. But almond oil can also produce gummy muffins. Here, a small amount of butter is combined with the aromatic oil for a lighter crumb with that characteristic, nutty flavor. Almond oil is found in almost all gourmet markets and in some supermarkets in the cooking oil section. Store it in the refridgerator, but let it come to room temperature before using it in this recipe. Muffins will stay fresh for two days, or can be frozen for up to 2 months.
