Freezer Meal Recipes / Breakfast / Pistachio Chai Muffins

Pistachio Chai Muffins

Coffee and I have a candy coated relationship. Meaning my ratio of coffee to milk/sugar is about 1 to 10. I love the taste of coffee but it has to be very subtle. I need sweet and lots of flavoring. Plus I just do not really want to be a caffeine addict. A few years ago I was in a local coffee shop and I saw chai tea on the menu. I had really never heard of it but was intrigued so I ordered my first cup and fell in love! Iced coffee has become my summer treat but I do still love chai. Cruising around on Pinterest one day I came across this recipe and knew that it would be perfect for our Fall menu. I whipped up a batch this past weekend and coupled it with a homemade pumpkin spice latte and immediately yearned for cooler weather. Happy September to everyone!

  1. When it says serves 6, does that mean this recipe makes 6 muffins? 12 muffins? It would be bad (or maybe good after all) if start doubling this recipe and then find myself with more muffins than I know what to do with.Thanks 🙂

  2. My Honey Bunny is going to be so excited about these muffins. He is a big Pistachio fan, so I will be making these for him this week! Hope you will have a great week and thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
