I don't drink coffee, but I love these muffins. They are full of coffee and chocolate flavor, but not too much of either. From the Frog Commissary Cookbook.

- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 3⁄4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

I think these are EXCELLENT muffins! I'm not a coffee drinker either but enjoy it in desserts. This adapted well to using white whole wheat flour and Splenda products...I used 1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar blend for the brown sugar and 1/2 cup Splenda granular for the white sugar. I used 1 percent milk, decaf instant coffee, bourbon vanilla and added 1tsp of cinnamon. I decreased the chocolate chips to 1/2 cup and the walnuts to 1/2 cup. I think it would have been too chunky otherwise. These rose very nicely and were nice and soft with a great cappucino flavor. I think they improve overnight. Made for the Please Review game.
Wonderful muffins. I Cooked mine for 22 min. and were a little dry so will try 20 min. next time. Loved the coffee and chocolate combination.
I LOVE the flavor of these but they just didn't want to bake for me! I must have had them in the over for almost an hour and they still didn't cook through. Shhh... I ate them anyway LOL I will be retrying these for sure as I'm sure I screwed something up
