Mint chocolate star muffins
What do you guys think about the combination of mint and chocolate?
I know some people might disagree but I really love it. That's why I made these mint chocolate muffins covered with star shaped cereal (Stelline di cereali al cacao)!! 🌟
They are super fluffy and the big dark chocolate chunks in the middle make them extra delicious!!!
If you want to make them too you can read the recipe in the section below 💁♀️
70g egg whites (about 2 eggs)
165g all purpose flour
45g vegetable oil
95g granulated sugar
60g mint syrup*
7g baking powder
pinch of salt
Dark chocolate chunks (or chips)
--- TOPPINGS ---
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and prepare your muffin tin with 9 paper or silicone cups.
In a bowl beat the egg whites until stiff. Set aside.
In another bowl whisk together with a hand whisker the liquid ingredients: sugar, vegetable oil, mint syrup and milk.
Sift in the dry ingredients: all purpose flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until combined.
Stir in the chocolate chunks.
Fold in the egg whites very slowly and very carefully with a spatula.
Transfer this mixture into the prepared muffin cups and top with cocoa cereal stars (Stelline di cereali al cacao).
Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean.
Let them cool completely before removing from the cups.
My mint syrup is sugar free but you can use whatever you like.
Store the muffins in an airtight container for a few days but they are best eaten the day of otherwise the cereal become soft and chewy.
I adapted the recipe from here.
If you make it let me know! :)
