Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake Muffins

Sunday, March 6, 2011

It is a beautiful Sunday morning here and I wanted to make some type of muffins to enjoy outside. This was created by Medifast member, Oikouros on the recipe forums, but she made it into one larger cake in the microwave. Call me old fashioned, but most of the time I like to make my baked goods in the oven except for the brownies. You can make this as a single cake, regular sized muffins, or mini muffins. I just chose to have mini muffins because they are so cute! These were perfect little nibblers that satisfied my craving for a little chocolate. The combination of coffee and chocolate chips make these very tasty. It sank a little in the middle unlike other muffin recipes, but this was fine by me because I wanted to top it with a little cream cheese icing. The icing makes it better if I do say so myself. It doesn't even require much... just a dab will do on each little muffin. I have already eaten it with, without the icing as well as with only cream cheese on top without the addition of splenda in the icing. It is good all three ways, but you have to try the icing with it at least once! You will love it so much more! This would also work great with Hot Cocoa instead of the Cappuccino if you want more of a chocolate flavor. Enjoy!
