These Muffins will be perfect as a baked treat for tonights Great British Bake Off Final
These Walnut and Mocha Muffins are dark and springy with chocolate chips and tiny walnut pieces
2 Large Eggs
125ml plain yoghurt
125ml strong coffee
125ml milk – cows milk or almond milk
250g gluten free self raising flour
100g sugar or coconut sugar ( if you like a sweeter muffin you can add more sugar ) I’ve used less than half the sugar normally used in a muffin recipe
1/4 cup raw cacao or 75g cocoa powder
pinch of salt
100g dark chocolate gluten free chips
100g finely chopped walnuts
pre heat oven 200c
cool the coffee
add the milk, yoghurt and beaten eggs to the coffee in a large bowl
in a separate bowl add the flour, cacao, finely chopped walnuts, sugar, salt
stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix well
add the chocolate chips and mix again
grease the muffin tin well or use muffin cases ( mine stuck a little to the paper cases ) I need to treat myself to a decent muffin tin.
fill the cups almost to the top with muffin mixture.
pop in the hot oven
200c for 10 mins
then lower for up to 15mins at 180c Mine only took about 10mins using a fan oven
the muffins should be firm
cool and pop on a wire rack
delicious warm or cold.
I’ve eaten two already and bake off isn’t for another couple of hours !
I think next time I will use only 1/8 cup of cacao as it is so much stronger tasting than cocoa powder
Enjoy the Bake Off Final tonight , maybe you will have time to bake these first
Ready Steady Bake!
