We’re on Day 3 of the gluten-free muffin recipe sharing for March Muffin Madness (MMM)! Yes, another delicious muffin recipe—gluten-free Chocolate Mint Muffins–and new giveaways here on gfe!
Chocolate Mint Muffins from Premeditated Leftovers
These Chocolate Mint Muffins —or Chocolate Muffins with Mint Chips if you prefer—come from Alea at Premeditated Leftovers. As Alea says, one guaranteed way to make delicious chocolate muffins even better is to add mint chips to them, because chocolate are mint are simply a divine match that should be made and enjoyed all year long. Because of the green factor, I’m sure that many of you will want to make these for St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow!
Alea has a fine history of combining chocolate and mint. Her Gluten-free Chocolate Mint Doughnuts with Andes Candy have made so many happy!
Note that Alea’s site shares both gluten-free and gluten-full recipes, but you’ll find plenty gluten-free recipes to make you happy. Some of her other gluten-free muffin recipes that you’ll want to see are:
Pizza Muffins, and
You’ll also want the recipe for Alea’s Lemon Chia Seed Muffins, a guest post here on gfe during the last MMM event. Alea gave us a great new muffin recipe and showed us how chia seeds pack more of a nutritional punch and are less expensive than poppy seeds.
Okay, before you head over to Premeditated Leftovers to get Alea’s Chocolate Mint Muffins recipe (entering the overall giveaway if you haven’t already, and leaving a comment there for an extra entry for the overall/grand prize giveaway), you’ll want to check out the daily giveaway below!
Today’s Daily Giveaway
Today’s prizes are:
This is Alea’s brand new cookbook! Although Alea herself is gluten free, the recipes in this book are written for a mainstream audience with many naturally gluten-free recipes and notes when gluten-free substitutions are needed. In fact, I “consulted” with Alea as she was writing her cookbook to make sure that all the gluten-free bases were covered. She didn’t really need my expertise and really only asked a few questions here and there, but it’s always nice to have someone else’s input, of course. Many thanks to Alea for mentioning me in her book and thanks to both her and her publisher for sponsoring this prize!
Alea’s book is terrific. The recipes and their photos make you want to get cooking and none of them are complicated. The prep-ahead, batch cooking factor simply allows you to get a jump on a meal and future meals if you’d like. I’ll be back another time in the future sharing a recipe from her cookbook. But for now you can check out Alea’s book on Amazon and you can also see some of her prep-ahead, batch-cooking techniques in videos, which she shares on her YouTube channel and her Premeditated Leftovers Facebook page.
~ Organic White Chia Seeds (1 lb from Nuts.com sponsored by gfe, 1 winner)
Alea used chia seeds in those previously mentioned lovely Lemon Chia Seed Muffins. She went for the traditional gray/black chia seeds to achieve the poppy seed look, but white chia seeds are terrific when you want your inclusion of chia seeds in a recipe to be more “subtle.”
~ Silicone Muffin Cups (2 sets of 12, 2 winners)
This prize is sponsored by Starlene of GAPS Diet Journey. Starlene is sharing a muffin recipe later in our event. She said that she wanted to share these silicone muffins cups because she says they are “AMAZING”! I believe her, plus they’re colorful and fun, too!
