If you are like us, some mornings can be more hectic than others. Trying to get the kids up and dressed and feed them breakfast before they have to be at before school activities can sometimes be difficult. That’s when muffins come in handy. A muffin, some yogurt and a piece of fruit make a quick, easy and healthy breakfast (or even lunch!). Muffins in general are easy to prepare and cook much quicker than making a bread. I love that I can make a batch, freeze them and can take them out as needed. These chocolate chip coffee muffins were enjoyed by both the adults and the kids. I used decaffeinated coffee granules to make them more child-friendly. These will be making an appearance in our kitchen again soon!

2 cups all purpose flour

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
2 tablespoons instant decaffeinated coffee granules
1. Preheat oven to 400. Line muffin tin with cupcake liners.
2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and chocolate chips.
3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, butter, vanilla, egg, and coffee granules.
4. Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients in the large bowl and combine until just moist. Spoon the batter into the muffin liners and bake for 15-18 minutes until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to let cool.
