Coffee Obsession

I don’t know if you can tell or not, but I’m a fan of coffee. You probably can, seeing as my blog name is Coffee Fit Kitchen. When I say fan, I mean I turn into a little monster if I don’t have my morning cup of joe. My husband knows that if we’re going on a trip somewhere, he has to plan coffee pit stops and make sure it is assessable at our destination. I’m also a little bit of a coffee snob. I can’t just drink any brand of coffee unless I absolutely have to. Honestly, I think that instant coffee is disgusting. So, when I ordered instant coffee for these muffins, I couldn’t believe that I had bought it. I told my husband that I did something I would never do. “Buy instant coffee.” However, the coffee and chocolate combo in these muffins helps get an extra coffee fix for the day!

I fully admit that I am obsessed with coffee, and I don’t mind in the slightest! Because It has health benefits and makes me happy! I’m sure a lot of you can relate to my coffee addiction. So, I feel comforted in knowing I am not alone.

Cappuccino Muffin Ingredients

  • Unbleached all-purpose flour
  • Whole wheat flour
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Instant coffee
  • Baking powder
  • Fine sea salt
  • Turbinado sugar
  • Egg
  • Vanilla extract
  • Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Coconut oil
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips

The thing I love about these Cappuccino Chocolate Chip Muffins is that they are healthy in addition to being tasty! The ingredients include whole-wheat flour, turbinado sugar, unsweetened almond milk, and coconut oil. Not to mention the fact that cocoa and coffee are both loaded with antioxidants! Overall, these muffins make a great snack for any occasion, especially if you’re as much a fan of coffee like me!

If you have a nut allergy, you can easily substitute almond milk for coconut milk! Or if you have a gluten intolerance, you could replace the flour with gluten-free baking flour. I have personally used these substitutes, and they have still turned out great for me!
