    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line a standard muffin tray with paper cases.
    2. Combine both flours, baking powder, cinnamon and protein in a large mixing bowl.
    3. Add salt, almond extract, ginger and vanilla to the mix and stir.
    4. Add butter to the mixture and whisk on high with an electric mixer. Add the egg.
    5. The mixture will become very stiff, at this point add all the agave nectar and begin to pour the milk in equal intervals into the mix and whisk on high.
    6. Once everything is well combined it should run off the spoon at a slow/gooey pace. If the mixture seems too stiff, add more milk.
    7. Pour mixture evenly into 12 muffin cases and bake until a knife inserted in the muffins comes out clean, about 15 to 20 minutes.
    8. Leave to to cool and serve or packup for your next session.
