 Chocolate Financiers (Mini-muffins), Gluten Free

My friend, who is on gluten free diet, shared with me this recipe. These little muffins were so delicious, so light and moist that they become one of my very favorite desserts, even though I am not on gluten free diet. But what I love most of all – when you bake them, your whole house fills with delicious aroma of chocolate and almonds!
