Almond Flour Paleo Muffins

I know, I'm out of control, also, remember how I hate cooking and that's all I've been doing lately... I am a woman obsessed. 
I found this recipe and wanted to give it a try, I love how flexible it is. I think the next time I make them I'll add some lemon zest *yum!* Or maybe add some almond extract.

2-1/2 cups almond flour or almond meal
¾ tsp baking soda
½ tsp fine sea salt
3 large eggs
⅓ cup unsweetened pumpkin puree, thawed winter squash puree, butternut squash puree, unsweetened apple sauce, or mashed very ripe banana
2 tablespoons honey, agave nectar or maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted) or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vinegar (white or cider)
Optional Flavorings: 1 teaspoon extract (e.g., vanilla, almond), citrus zest, dried herbs (e.g., basil, dill), or spice (e.g., cinnamon, cumin)
Optional Stir-Ins: 1 cup fresh fruit (e.g., blueberries, diced apple) or ½ cup dried fruit/cacao nibs/chopped nuts/seeds or

Preheat oven to 350F. Line 12 cups in a standard 12-cup muffin tin with paper or foil liners.
In a large bowl whisk the almond flour, baking soda and salt (whisk in any dried spices or herbs at this point, if using).
In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, pumpkin, honey, oil and vinegar (add any extracts or zest at this point, if using).
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until blended. Fold in any optional stir-ins, if using.
Divide batter evenly among prepared cups.
Bake in preheated oven for 14 to 18 minutes until set at the centers and golden brown at the edges. Move the tin to a cooling rack and let muffins cool in the tin 30 minutes. Remove muffins from tin.
