  • ¾ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cups brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Topping

  • AA Coarse Sugar (optional, but gives a good sweet flavor.)

Directions for this fabulous Green Pistachio Muffin Recipe

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees, and prepare muffin pan.  I use the liners, because it’s easier, less messy, and makes them easier to store.
  • In a large mixing bowl mix all dry ingredients – pudding, flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt.
  • In a different mixing bowl mix all wet ingredients, medium mix eggs, almond extract, milk, and oil. Do not add food coloring yet
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients, and add 2 drops of food coloring.  Add more 2 drops at a time until you get desired color.
  • Cover using AA Coarse Sugar.  I personally like to use a lot, it gives everything a really nice flavor and makes the top of the muffin a little crunchy which I like.
  • Fill muffin cups and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until toothpick done.
  • Allow to cool and enjoy.
