Mocha Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe

Can you think of a better way to start the day than with Mocha Chocolate Chip Muffins?

I was given a sample of some wonderful cold brewed coffee from the folks at Icebox coffee. I developed this mocha chocolate chip muffin recipe using their concentrated coffee. The concentrate is very strong and not in the least bit bitter....on the contrary, it is a very smooth coffee. You may be able to substitute very strong coffee for the concentrate and it will probably work fine but I can't guarantee the results will be as wonderful as if you use their product.


1 1/2 cup All Purpose flour

1/2 cup Whole Wheat flour

1 cup light brown sugar

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 cup canola oil

2 eggs

1 cup of milk

2 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup (2-ounces) Icebox cold brew coffee concentrate (do not dilute)

1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350° F. Line 12 jumbo or 24 regular size muffin tins with cupcake liners.
