These coffee muffins with decadent chocolate chunks are super easy to make, and they’re perfect for crisp, fall mornings. All you need is a hot cup of coffee to go with them!

Here’s how to make these coffee and chocolate chunk muffins. This recipe was adapted from Cooking Light.


2/3 cup whole milk

½ stick of melted butter

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

3 tablespoons strong-brewed coffee (directions below)

1 egg

2 cups flour

1 cup sugar (reserve 2 tablespoons for sprinkling)

1/2 cup chocolate chunks

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt


1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Double brew your coffee – this can be done by adding twice the amount of coffee you normally would to your brewer, with the same amount of water. Set 2 tablespoons of the coffee aside. We recommend using European Gourmet for this recipe, but any of our coffees would be great!

3. Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly with a whisk.

4. Divide batter among 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes.

5. Remove muffins from oven, sprinkle tops with remaining sugar and bake for another 3-5 minutes, or until muffins are done and sugar is crystallized. Enjoy!
