I start with a box of gluten free muffin mix. I pretty much follow the directions on the box. Two eggs, 6 tablespoons oil (butter) and a cup of rice milk (milk). Here comes the brilliant part! Instead of vanilla I add mint extract, 2 bags of herbal peppermint tea and 5-10 drops of green food coloring depending on how green you want them to be. Throw in some chocolate chips and you have the perfect gluten free, dairy free Mint Chocolate Chip Muffins!
6 Tbs oil
1 cup rice milk
1/2 tsp mint extract
2 peppermint tea bags
green food coloring
Chocolate chips (I use the Enjoy Life that are dairy free, gluten free, soy free, and nut free)
I was going to take pictures of the batter because it looks and smells JUST like melted mint chocolate chip ice cream but my camera battery died. :( I pulled some out of my remote control while the muffins were baking.
The finished product:
They also freeze really well if you need a quick snack, breakfast or dessert.
