Mint Chocolate Chip Muffins

Hi Everyone,

Since St. Patty’s day is just about here, I thought I would share a green, minty recipe just for you!  I was inspired to make this recipe because my Husband LOVES mint chocolate chip cookies, so I thought why not turn it into a muffin?  After all mint and chocolate in bread form must be amazing!  You know what?  Yes it is!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a green colored muffin with what my Husband calls a muffin with boobies. Well this is the same recipe with a little modification. I have a little lump in the middle, but nothing like the boobie muffins. lol These muffins turned out amazing! Light, buttery, minty and of course chocolaty. Just amazing! I was pretty impressed by these bad boys and my Husband just loved them. They didn’t last in my house at all.

They are super easy to make too! I made it the traditional muffin way, but added some vanilla greek yogurt for a little protein boost and to give it moisture. In compared to my first muffins, I used melted butter in these muffins. The other ones I used oil. I like the butter flavor so much better and the texture is so much lighter, and fluffier. I have to say butter in muffins is the way to go!!

I will tell you there is nothing like waking up to a soft, fluffy muffin fresh out of the oven. Oh and the smell of muffins baking! Oh my gosh I love it! I am so glad I don’t work in a bakery. I would probably eat just about every muffin out of the oven. *DROOLING*

Well my Friends, that is it for me! Have a super wonderful day!
