Green Pistachio Muffin Recipe Ingredients
- 1 box of instant pistachio pudding (3.4-ounce package)
- 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
- ¾ cups granulated sugar
- ½ cups brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Dash of sea salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of milk
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- Food coloring (optional)
- ½ teaspoon almond extract (can use vanilla extract)
- 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 the 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.
Another topping choice:
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- ¼ sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon pistachio flavor
- After your muffins are cooked use a pastry brush to paint on the muffin topping. Allow to cool, and enjoy!
