Mint & chocolate might just be one of my favorite flavor combinations. Regardless of the time of year.
I know, so many people believe that mint is a winter flavor only. I disagree. I mean, why?
Why not enjoy mint year round!
And these Mint Chocolate Chip Greek Yogurt Muffins will help you do just that!
These muffins are made with protein-rich Greek yogurt to replace some of the oil, reducing the fat content of the muffins, and adding some healthy protein.
Muffins are a great make-ahead breakfast option too
Grab and go muffins are a busy person’s dream.
Or, take them, pop them in the freezer, and they store for a long time. Once frozen they make a good addition to a lunch bag, as the will defrost during the day and be ready for lunch time, while keeping the lunch cool.
When measuring the flour, make sure lightly spoon the flour into the measuring cup, and level it off with the flat side of a knife.
The muffins will turn out dry and heavy if there’s too much flour in the batter.
I like to use a cookie dough scoop to get the batter into the muffin cups. Since it’s a nice thick batter, it scoops well.
I love the sweetness of these muffins, but if you want to make them a little lighter, cut the sugar to ½ cup. Just know that the sugar helps create the crust on the top of the muffins as they bake, so you will lose a bit of the great texture of these muffins.
You can also swap the chocolate chips for chopped strawberries for a fruity variation.
Refrigerate baked muffins up to 4 days, or freeze for up to 1 month. Soften a few seconds in the microwave before eating if desired.
Choice of oil
You want a neutral tasting oil for these muffins. I like grapeseed oil. Vegetable oil or lite olive oil will also work.

Mint Chocolate Chip Greek Yogurt Muffins
- Preheat oven to 400° F. Line muffin cups with muffin liners, and spray the muffin liners with non-stick cooking spray.

- In a separate large bowl, add oil, 2 eggs, and Greek yogurt and whisk to combine.
- Add the flour mixture to the liquid mixture and mix, until just combined. Be careful not to over mix, or the batter will toughen.
- Fold the chocolate chips and peppermint extract into the batter.
- Using a cookie dough scoop, fill the lined muffin cups about 3/4 full.
- Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
