Chocolate Chip Coffee Muffins
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min.
These are like coffee-cake muffins, but with a more subdued streusel which I think is perfect for this muffin; the topping creates some textural variety. I made these as 12 muffins instead of 15 and they worked perfectly - they're beautiful! - and I baked them for about 22-26 minutes. I would imagine they'd be a bit small if I had made 15.The coffee is very subtle here and contributes to an overall heartiness; it disguises itself as a sort of "can't-put-my-finger-on-it" flavor somewhat akin to nuttiness. Also, the mini chocolate chips mean you don't encounter a big pocket of melted chocolate; they, again, lend themselves to the overall impression. This is what makes this muffin such a fantastic muffin for breakfast or coffee; it's delicious, satisfying and presentable, flavorful but not extravagant or rich.
Very good! I made them for work on Mother's day...they were a big hit!
I have made a recipe about identical to this for many years. I add raisins to them. Wonderful breakfast or anytime snack.
These muffins are awesome! They are more like dessert than breakfast. I increased the size by making 12 instead of 15 and they are a real treat!
These muffins are quite nice. I did reduce the amount of mini-chocolate chips to 1/2 cup, and added 1/2 cup of chopped nuts.
This recipe is awesome-my whole family loves them. I have made several similar versions, but this one is the best!
