Coffee Choco Chip Muffins

5 May

Since I have started working, I never eat breakfast in the morning because I am usually still half asleep but I always make time to grab a tall mocha at my local Starbucks.  By the time 2 pm rolls around, my stomach is growling and my mood is plummeting.  For some reason, it just dawned on me yesterday that I should make muffins that contain coffee so that I could get more bang for my buck. I know that today is Cinco de Mayo but these muffins are so delicious that I thought I should share them with you guys. Enjoy!


  • ¾ cup Brown Sugar
  • ¼ cup white
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 teaspoon instant coffee
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
Cream the butter together with sugars, the cinnamon, the vanilla and the coffee.  Beat together eggs and milk.  Combine, flour, salt and and baking powder. Alternately add the wet and the dry ingredients to the butter mixture until just combined. Add chips and walnuts. Scoop batter into muffin tin, filling until almost full.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.
