Caramel Mocha Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Caramel Mocha Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

A muffins recipe that combines my love of coffee and my love of caramel, plus helps to use up the bananas in my freezer. Well, that makes it a winner in my book. I was already in love with the muffin before I even tried it and of course once I tired it I knew this recipe was a keeper.

Caramel Mocha Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
Ingredients:
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
3 ripened bananas, smashed
1 tablespoon espresso powder
1 tablespoon warm water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips, divided
3/4 cup caramel baking bits

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350ยบ F. Line 2 muffins tins with 20 muffins liners or spray 20 spots well with cooking spray.

In a small bowl combine the warm water and espresso bowl, stirring until the well mix. If using instant coffee stir until dissolved.

In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and both sugars. Add in the egg, mashed bananas, coffee water and vanilla, mix well.

In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Slowly add the dry mixture into the wet mixture, mixing just until combined.

Fold in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips and caramel bits with a spoon. Fill the prepared muffins tins with the batter, filling about 3/4 of the way. Sprinkle the top of the muffins with the remaining chocolate chips.

Bake for 20-22 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove the muffins from the tins and allow to cool on a cooking rack.

Enjoy!!!

Notes:
2 tablespoons instant coffee may be substituted for the espresso powder.
