mini muffin pan
OXO whisk
mini scoop


  • 115 grams (½ cup) unsalted butter plus more for greasing pan
  • 100 grams (½ cup) granulated sugar
  • 63 grams (½ cup) chestnut flour
  • 63 grams ( cup) ground almonds
  • 90 grams ( cup) egg whites from 3 large eggs, approximately
  • 0.625 mL ( tsp) Diamond Crystal fine kosher salt
  • 1.25 mL (¼ tsp) pure vanilla extract
  • 48 frozen cranberries do not thaw!
  • sorghum flour for dusting greased pans.


  • Brown the butter in a small saucepan. Turn off the heat when the butter smells very nutty and the milk solids have browned. Set aside the pan to cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar with the chestnut flour and the ground almond.
  • In a separate medium bowl, beat the egg whites with the salt until they are frothy and quite thick.
  • Pour the egg whites over the dry ingredients and whisk them in, then add the vanilla and the browned butter and stir to incorporate everything together really well.
  • Wrap the bowl in plastic wrap and chill 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Butter 16 wells of a mini-muffin pan and flour them with sorghum flour, tapping out the excess. Make sure that the sides and bottoms of the muffin wells are evenly coated.
  • Divide the batter between the 16 wells of the pan, and top with 2 to 3 frozen cranberries, pressing them down slightly.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes until the edges begin to brown.
  • Let cool 5 to 10 minutes so that the financiers firm up before unmolding them onto a wire rack to cool completely.
