Recipe: Chocolate and mint muffins

Dessert recipes with herbs

Chocolate and Mint MuffinsI never get tired of preparing new muffins : in less than an hour you bake sweet or savory tidbits, loved by children.

As I told in the post Vegan burger with aromatic herbs, my son is a picky eater, but he became a muffin fan, he loves to prepare the dough with me, watch them in the oven and taste them immediately while still hot.

This is our last recipe: muffins with the classic pairing of chocolate and mint, with a rustic texture given by the whole wheat flour and ground hazelnuts.
