Mochi muffins add a unique and delicious twist to the traditional mochi. They are easier to make because they’re made from mochiko (also known as glutinous-rice flour). This gives them a slightly sweet and chewy texture.
The versatility of mochi muffins makes them a great choice. You can customize the taste by adding a variety mix-ins. Chocolate chips, fruits, nuts and even savory items like bacon and cheese are popular choices.

Mochi Muffins Key Ingredients
The recipe card is at the bottom of the post. It contains all the details and ingredients.
- Mochiko flour. White glutinous rice flour. Use any brand of flour you want, but my favorite is Mochiko.
- Golden Brown Sugar. Use golden brown sugar in place of brown sugar when making this recipe. This sugar is a little lighter, and has a delicate taste that’s perfect for this recipe.
- Granulated white Sugar. Regular granulated sugar is also required.
- Coconut Milk. With a mild coconut flavor, it adds natural flavor to muffins. This also makes them moist.
- Fresh Eggs are the best.
- Butter. Butter muffins would not be complete without butter. Use unsalted.
- Vanilla. Add a dash of vanilla to the mochi muffin mix for a more delicate and light aroma. You can either make your own vanilla extract or buy some from the store.
