Muffin Monday - Whole Wheat Mocha Nut Muffins

Chocolate + coffee = delicious!

Mocha Nut Muffins
(inspiration here)
makes 12

1 c. whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 c. whole wheat flour
2/3 c. rapadura (or white sugar)
1/2 t. aluminum free baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. sea salt
1 c. chopped walnuts (or nut of choice)
3/4 c. quality chocolate chips
2 eggs
1/2 c. buttermilk
1 t. real vanilla
1/2 c. melted coconut oil or butter
1/4 c. strong black coffee (at room temp.)

1. Preheat oven to 375F and line muffin tin with cupcake papers.

2. Measure all dry ingredients into a mixing bowl; stir to blend.

3. Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl; stir in buttermilk, vanilla, and coffee. Slowly whisk melted coconut oil or butter into the buttermilk mixture.

4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring only until moistened - don't over mix your muffins!

5. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.

6. Bake muffins for about 20 minutes; check with a toothpick to be sure they're done.

7. Allow muffins to cool a minute or two before removing to a wire rack to finish cooling.

8. Be sure to take a picture of your baking assistant. :)

Bon appetit!

AnnaLynn and I would love to know if you give any of our muffin recipes a try. Let us know how they turn out or if you put a different spin on them. :)

  3. I will definitely have to try this! I am putting it on my recipe list right now. Ever thought of adding zucchini??!!

  4. Kathy - It's a brand new recipe to us, so this is actually the very first time we've made these. I'm sure some shredded zucchini would be a nice touch. If you do give these a try, we'd love to hear how they turn out. Blessings, ~Lisa

    We are far more diligent about checking in for muffin recipes than we are about letting you know that we are inspired by you to make zillions of muffins! My 12yo daughter and I made these this morning. We always use 100% ww flour in all of your recipes (which is all I ever have in the pantry) and if we toss in an additional small egg, or a "glug" of whatever the liquid is, it works out every time. Today we used milk kefir instead of buttermilk and added 2T. cocoa powder(because we think if some chocolate is good, MORE is better). Yummy hardly begins to describe the results.--Holly

  12. Holly - Wow!! Thank you SO MUCH for your kind words and especially for taking the time to let us know your family is enjoying our recipes. What a blessing your comment is to AnnaLynn and myself! :) We especially enjoyed these muffins ourselves, but I have to be careful not to enjoy too many as I want to continue fitting into my clothes! Blessings to you and yours, ~Lisa

  13. Congratulations Lisa on your feature at Full Plate Thursday. I am so happy you picked up your Red Plate. Hope you are having a great week!
    Miz Helen

  15. Mary, I hope you won't be cheating on my account!! Ba good. :) ~Lisa
