  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vietnamese cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1½ cups of fresh or frozen blackberries

  • 1 egg or 1 chia egg *
  • Crumb Topping:
  • ¼ cup hazelnut meal
  • ¼ cup natural cane sugar
  • ½ teaspoon Vietnamese cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees and line a 12-cup muffin tin with 10 paper liners.
  2. Sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl and add any bits that may remain in the sifter. Add the blackberries and toss gently to coat with the flour mixture, this will help keep them from sinking to the bottom of the muffin tins.
  3. Combine all the wet ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk well to combine. Using a spatula, mix the wet ingredients into the dry and gently combine.
  4. Scoop the batter into 10 muffin cups using a `1/2 cup measuring cup or ice cream scoop.
  5. In a small bowl stir together the hazelnut meal, chopped hazelnuts, cane sugar, cinnamon, cardamom, and coconut oil. Sprinkle the hazelnut topping over the batter, gently pressing it into the batter.
  6. Bake for 24 to 28 minutes or until they smell nutty are golden brown and spring back slightly in the middle. When you remove the tins from the oven, remove the muffins from the tins and place them on a cooling rack or place on its side in the muffin tin to ensure that the muffins don't get soggy.
