Mint chocolate chip muffins

Soft, moist, sweet with delicate mint aroma, packed with dark chocolate chips. We liked them very much as we love mint and chocolate combination. The recipe comes from 'Easy muffins' 

Ingredients for 12-14 muffins:
  •  280g flour ( I used 200g plain flour and 80g wholegrain flour)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 115g caster sugar
  • 150g plain chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 250ml milk
  • 85g malted butter
  • 1 tsp mint essence
  • green food colouring (optional)

Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

Melt the butter either in microwave or over a heat. Set aside to cool down.

Place the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and chocolate chips in a big bowl and whisk them together.

Whisk the eggs in separate jug, add milk, cooled butter, mint essence and food colouring. Stir well all ingredients. 

Pour the wet ingredients into a bowl with dry ones. Mix them until just moist. 

Spoon the batter into baking cases, about 3/4 full.

Bake for 20 minutes until well risen and springy in touch.

Transfer them to the wire rack or plate and enjoy warm or cooled down.

Enjoy !  


  1. Can the measurements be translated into english, please? :0)

    1. Yes, of course g stands for gram, ml - milliliters, tbsp - table spoon and tsp tea spoon. :)

  2. Made these and LOVED them..Im a huge mint chocolate fan and these hit the spot :)

    Also..for those who don't know how to switch the measurements from grams to a weight scale :) they aren't expensive and your baking will actually improve once you start weighing everything..thats what I did for the recipe..easy peasy :)

    1. Thank you for your comment :) I am really glad you like those muffins :)
