Valentine’s Day is only a few days away…time to bake something special for all my boys.
How about a basket of freshly baked allergy friendly muffins to start the day?
Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins
Mmmmm…these little treasures were a hit!
Matthew loved this mini muffin version. He literally kept popping them in his mouth…I lost track as to how many he ended up eating. Very addictive!
Andy was also quite taken by the mini muffins…as was Michael.
You won’t believe where I found the recipe…in the 2012 Milk Calendar! Click here for the original recipe.
Baking with milk may be easy…but when you have a dairy allergy, it is down right lethal!
I also replaced the one egg with 2 tbsp of water and 1/2 tsp baking soda.
The orange juice was replaced with coffee…Matthew was not keen on the idea of orange in his chocolate muffin. As he likes the flavour of coffee…it seemed like a good substitution. Unfortunately, the coffee flavour did not come through…next time I would use a stronger coffee…Espresso.
I love that this recipe’s flour base is half wholewheat flour…the boys didn’t even seem to notice the extra built in fibre. An added bonus!
Enjoyed as a snack later in the day…
…Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins are all dressed up for Valentine’s Day.
Mini muffins are hard to resist!
Are you planning on baking any allergy friendly Valentine treats for your family?
