Let’s start simple. Simple yet delicious. I present to you:
MOCHA CHIP MUFFINS!
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
2 teaspoons instant coffee
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup soy milk
1/2 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons soy yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 F. Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners.
In a large bowl, sift together dry ingredients (flour through salt).
In a seperate bowl, wisk together wet ingredients (soy milk through yogurt) until emulsified.
Pour wet into dry and combine until dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill muffin tins almost to the top. Bake 18 – 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
