Best Pistachio Muffins Recipe

These delicious pistachio muffins are moist, fluffy and rich, with a crunchy muffin top!

 

They’re packed with flavors of pistachio nuts, almond and vanilla, and are so quick and easy to make.

 

Pistachio is one of my favorite flavors in desserts, and using pudding mix in the muffin batter is an incredibly easy way to pack in flavor without much effort.

 

These are a new favorite in my house and I know you’re going to love them!

Baking with pistachios is so much fun, and so delicious!

 

I love the green hue it adds to baked goods, and the unique flavor is unlike anything else.

Almond and Pistachio Pudding Mix Muffins

I love how versatile muffins can be–from double chocolate to matcha and everything in between.

 

Pistachio used to be one of my favorite ice cream flavors (and macarons), and that classic nutty flavor is so amazing in muffin form!

 

To make it even better, adding some vanilla and almond extract adds even more depth of flavor to these muffins and keeps you coming back for more.

 

Perfect as a dessert or a breakfast and great for children and adults!

INGREDIENTS

  • Sugar – Plain, white sugar is best for sweetness and color.
  • Oat Milk – Feel free to use your favorite milk!
  • Vegetable Oil – Any neutral oil like canola is also fine.
  • Flax Egg – This helps bind and add moisture like an egg would. If you’re not vegan an egg can also be used instead.
  • Vanilla & Almond Extract – I love these flavors mixed with the pistachio! Especially the almond.
  • Pistachio Pudding Mix – This is the easiest way to pack these muffins full of pistachio flavor!
  • All-Purpose Flour – Bleached is best, but unbleached will work too!
  • Baking Powder & Soda – To help the muffins rise and get nice and fluffy.
  • Salt – To bring out all the pistachio almond flavors.
  • Toppings – I topped my muffins with a few pistachio nuts and some raw sugar for extra texture.
