Cappuccino Chip Muffins

My mama’s been baking batches of these since 1992! They are a favorite to all.

Recipe courtesy of Mostly Muffins.

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. instant espresso powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk — I used 1%
  • 1/2 cup melted butter or canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla
  • 3/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375*.

In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, instant espresso powder, salt & cinnamon. In another bowl, stir together milk, melted butter (or oil), egg and vanilla until blended. Add to dry ingredients. Stir just to combine. Fold in chips.

Spoon batter into a prepared muffin pan. Bake 15-20 minutes.

Enjoy with a hot cup of joe or drop off a dozen on your neighbor’s doorstep for a sweet Saturday surprise =]

[Makes 12-14 muffins]

    could you use soy milk for the milk portion?

    Could I use coffee grounds vs. espresso powder?

      I don’t see why not. It may be a bit gritty though.
