SCD Simple Apricot Muffins

Hello! It's been a while. I had been cooking a lot of repeats and mediocre experiments, but finally ventured out and tried something new, with success. :) Alex gave it an 8/10. The recipe yielded 7 muffins for me, but could probably be 6 if I had filled each tin a little more.

2 cups almond flour
1/3-1/2 cup  honey (I like 'em sweet and use 1/2 cup)
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
.5 tsp baking soda
.5 tsp salt
1/3 cup finely chopped dried apricots (We bought ours at TJ's, which lists apricots as the only ingredient. Obviously make sure they don't have any added sugar or starches.)

Mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the eggs, vanilla, and honey and stir well. Add about 1/2 of the chopped apricot into the batter and stir until incorporated. Pour them into a muffin tin, not quite full (see the picture). Add the remaining apricot pieces on top of each muffin. Bake at 300 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
