Hazelnut and raspberry financiers, delicious!

This is an ideal recipe to use your egg whites, financiers! They are very easy to make, done in no time and really delicious.

Traditionally, financiers are made with almond meal, but I don’t appreciate any kind of almond pastries. It’s a problem since many French pastries (I live in France) are made with almonds. At home, I always replace almond meal with hazelnut meal, but you could choose anyone you like.

In this recipe, I am using a small amount of homemade raspberry syrup, there is a recipe for strawberry syrup on my website, you could use it to make raspberry syrup, just maybe adjust the amount of sugar, since raspberries are a bit tart sometimes, click here for my strawberry syrup recipe.

Don’t my little financiers look cute in a muffin shape?
