These are what you would call a “healthier“ muffin! But my goodness, my whole family are hoooked on these! SO TASTY.
If you’re not a mint fan, switch the peppermint for orange or vanilla extract! I just use the cup measurements for this as it makes it easier!
Breakfast idea: serve with Greek yoghurt (or vegan greek style or any Alpro yog). Or, have on the side with a protien smoothie.
Or, have as a snack :)
