Peppermint Mocha Muffins

These are delicious, eggless peppermint mocha muffins loaded with peppermint truffles that make a perfect breakfast for the season, or a snack too! 

As the name suggests, these muffins have the flavors of my most preferred drink, peppermint mocha. Plus, these are loaded with peppermint truffles. These bite sized morsels of mint truffles coated with chocolate give an extra minty bite, and make it a whole new experience. The coffee, the chocolate, the peppermint in these muffins will make anyone say yum easily!

Today is the last Monday of the month (as well as the year) this is the final episode of #muffinmonday. We share delicious muffin recipes on the last Monday of the month. #MuffinMonday is a group of muffin loving bakers who get together once a month to bake muffins. You can see all of our lovely muffins by following our Pinterest board. Updated links for all of our past events and more information about Muffin Monday can be found on our home page.

Peppermint is only my favorite flavors, and this time of the year, it just brightens up everything. Right from breads, pancakes, or desserts, peppermint make the season’s  best comforting food. Try the following peppermint recipes from the blog.
