  • Preheat oven to 400 + prepare a greased or lined muffin tin. We like silicone muffin liners.
  • Mix together almond milk, egg, yogurt, peppermint extract, and maple syrup. Stir to combine.
  • Fold in flour, cocoa powder, coffee, baking soda, baking powder and chocolate chips
  • Pour batter in to greased or lined muffin tins, filling 3/4 the way.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes minutes until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center of muffins.
  • When muffins come out of the oven - immediately sprinkle with crushed candy canes. Do not bake with candy canes on top or they will melt.



Substitutions for this recipe:
  • WW Freestyle Note/Nutrition Facts : The points/nutrition facts for this recipe were calculated using Lily's Chocolate Chips
  • Milk: you can use any milk in this recipe
  • To make gluten free: replace whole wheat flour with Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Flour
  • To make vegan: I haven't tried it but I think you can replace 1 egg with 1 flax egg
  • Honey: You can substitute honey with maple syrup.
  • Flour: You can replace whole wheat flour with white flour but your muffins might be a little more dense. I would not recommend almond flour, coconut flour, or oat flour. You can not substitute these flours 1:1 with whole wheat flour.
  • Nuts: You can add  pecans or walnuts
  • Mini Muffins: You can make these into mini muffins by cutting the bake time in half.
