The Kitchen Prep

What's This?
Serving size 12

Made with whole wheat flour (I used a half all purpose, half whole wheat combo this time, but you can make them all whole wheat if you're trying to be good) and no butter, and boasting a healthy dose of dark chocolate flavor, a whole cup of coffee, and semi sweet chocolate chips (Flavanols! Antioxidants!), I think I might just be awake enough for breakfast when these are around.

*Note: Even though these contain coffee, they don't really taste like it. For a more prominent coffee flavor, try adding a tablespoon or so of instant coffee granules.


1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour1 cup all-purpose flour½ cup brown sugar⅓ cup cocoa powder (I used Dark Chocolate cocoa powder)1 tsp baking powder½ tsp baking soda¼ tsp salt1 egg½ cup canola oil1 cup strongly brewed coffee, cooled to room temperature½ tsp vanilla extract½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chip


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.{I like stirring add-ins to dry ingredients to help prevent sinkage to the bottom.}
  2. In a separate bowl, lightly beat egg. Mix in oil, coffee and vanilla. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and mix just until flour is no longer dry.
  3. Divide batter among 12 greased or paper lined muffin cups and bake for 20-22 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean. Let cool for a few minutes before unmolding.
  4. Happily justify eating chocolate for breakfast and enjoy!
