Gluten and Dairy Free Mint Choc Chip Muffins

25 prep time

I haven’t cooked a lot with mint, I think I only have two mint recipes on the website – candy cane cupcakes and mint crunch brownies. I was looking for a quick recipe to make on a week night to take in some baking to the office. These muffins can be prepped in 10 minutes and only take 25 minutes in the oven – the perfect easy recipe when you don’t have time.

I of course had to taste one for quality control purposes! Perfect when they have cooled a little but the chocolate chips are still melted.
