I love using warm spices during cold months, and chai is at the top of my list. The first time I tried this muffin recipe I used only chai spice, but the flavor wasn't strong enough. For my second attempt, I added more spice and Chai Latte concentrate. The chai flavor is perfect now and really shines through!

I used almond flour to make these muffins flourless. I also tried baking the muffins using ground almonds instead of almond flour, and it worked well. Note: Flourless muffins don't rise the same as recipes that use all-purpose flour.

I have a few other flourless recipes on this blog, including Flourless Carrot Cake Oat Bars, Flourless Pumpkin Spice Muffins, and Flourless Carrot Cake Muffins. I think this Chai Latte version is my new favorite.

Try this muffin recipe if you're stuck indoors this weekend and want to make your kitchen smell amazing.

I'm planning to enjoy one {or three} muffins this morning with my coffee before a yoga class.
