Coffee Muffins

A little coffee with your coffee – these muffins are made with instant espresso and are delish! They’re moist, with a soft cake crumb. I tossed in some mini semisweet chocolate chips to make them a tad more decadent. These coffee muffins are definitely going into my muffin rotation!
