These chocolate mint muffins only uses one flour…that’s it! Otto’s Cassava flour, no other starches/flours/fillers! No need to run to the local market for something you don’t have on hand already. If you want just a plain chocolate muffin, simply leave out the peppermint oil….want nuts in it, by all means toss some in…more chocolate chips, do it! Your preference here!
