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

  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • Food coloring (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract (can use vanilla extract)

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 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.

    Just when I think you can't surprise me anymore you throw something like this in. You are so freakin creative and apparently a master of many things. This not only sounds delicious it also has health benefits. I do like pistachios but to be honest I like them more in something verses plain. I also love muffins, my grandson will b 5 on St. Patrick's day so u have done all the hard work for me again. I love also that you don't deleted posts on your blog because unfortunately I don't have the best of luck with my old computers and if I lose something I just come back here. You all are the best... Thanks for sharing

    I don't recall ever seeing such a good-looking muffin. I've never had the chance either to taste Pistachio other than ice cream. I'd like to make this muffins this week and deliver a few to family and friends. They would be thrilled with this St. Patrick's Day treat.

    These look great, I think I'd opt for the butter frosting for them because for some reason I just want to put butter on them, maybe the nuts?
