Gluten Free Financiers with Nutella ... in a Muffin Cup, wanna try ???

No Gluten, Gluten free, Gluten Allergy ... lot of my clients are talking about Gluten Allergies during my Cooking Classes.

"Hopefully" one of my best friend (Hello Maud !!) is gluten allergic.
When she came home a couple of weeks ago, she brought these delicious French Financiers (a French specialty, usually made with flour, eggs, sugar and almond meal/powder ... the taste of almond is so so so gooood).

I said "Maud, it is very nice of you for making these treats even if you are gluten allergic !!" and she said "There is no flour in my financiers ... my Financiers are Gluten Free !!!"

I tried a bite and .... wouaaaouh ... they were so GOOD !!!!

The Financiers are usually baked in a individual rectangular mold.
I live in the US, so I need to adapt :  I decided today to make gluten free Financiers, in muffin cups with a coeur au Nutella (a Nutella's heart) ....

Nutella reminds me the Crepes au Nutella (French Crepes with Nutella) that kids and adults love in France

Believe me or not, this recipe is really easy : bring the kids in the kitchen !!!!!!!

What you need is what everybody has (or should have in the kitchen) : eggs, sugar, almond meal and butter.
Simple ingredients huh ???

And what is even easier is that you only have to put everything (whatever the order) in the bowl of your food processor and hop, in the oven !
If you don't have a food processor ... you can beat all ingredients with your powerful arms, and it works perfectly !!!

And Voila, Bon Appetit ... et Merci Maud !!!
Emilie, your French Chef

La recette of Guten Free Financiers (de Maud) with Nutella (Nutella is an extra, not an obligation !!!) :

Ingredients for 10 mini Gluten free Financiers :

- 10 mini muffin cups
- 3 large brown eggs
- 3.5 oz of granulated sugar (100gr)
- 2.3 oz of melted salted butter (65gr)
- 4.4 oz of almond meal (125gr) (Trader Joe's brand is perfect !)
- Nutella

Preheat the oven to 365° F. In a bowl, combine sugar, almond meal, butter and eggs. Mix 3mn with the food processor from low to high speed.

Put your muffin cups in your muffin pan. Fill each to 2/3. Add a small spoon of Nutella on the top of each cup (do not push the Nutella in the mixture).

Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until brown color (use a toothpick to make sure they are cooked).

Remove the cups from the pan and let cool during at least 1,5h (if you can resist)
