Mint Chocolate Chip Tigernut Flour Muffins

Have you started listening to Christmas music yet?  Normally, I start digging into the Christmas tunes during October, but this year the time got away from me.  It wasn’t until just after Halloween that I started rocking out to Jingle Bells and scanning Netflix for new holiday movies.  But on the food side of things, my mind has been in over-drive and my taste buds have been ahead of the typical seasonal flavors.  I suppose when you have a blog for sharing recipes that happens, haha!

Prior to September I was going all-out with the pumpkin, October brought in flavors of gingerbread, more pumpkin and cinnamon and my latest flavor obsession seems to be peppermint (which I associate with Christmas).  These Paleo friendly, Mint Chocolate Chip Tigernut Flour Muffins are just the thing to get you in the holiday spirit if you aren’t already.  They’re also just a great excuse to each chocolate 😉

These muffins are not only Paleo but nut free as well.  They are sweetened with a hint of maple syrup and crushed chocolate chips and they have a refreshing minty flavor.
