Oh my goodness! If you love all-things chocolate then you are simply going to go crazy over these Espresso Chocolate Chip Muffins! Every single bite is loaded with melt-in-your-mouth chocolate, and did I mention the texture? It is perfect!
While the photos shown in this post are the gluten-free version (showcasing jumbo muffins), you can also make these muffins with all-purpose flour. However, since I am on a gluten-free diet, naturally I made them gluten-free. Duh… I want to enjoy this chocolate delectable goodness too!

Before we begin talking about these scrumptious Espresso Chocolate Chip Muffins, I need to tell you something. Nearly everyone in our family loves coffee!
Interestingly enough, I am not a huge fan of coffee, BUT, I do love, love, love the smell of coffee brewing and I do love a good mocha frappuccino!!!
My husband, on the other hand, really doesn’t enjoy anything coffee flavored. Guess what? I asked him to try these Espresso Chocolate Chip Muffins (without him knowing they contain espresso powder) and to my delight, he loved them! He’s my official taste-tester! Read on!
After he gobbled down half of a muffin I asked him if he could taste coffee. He said that he could not. When I told him that the recipe calls for 2 teaspoons of espresso powder, he couldn’t believe it! I really wasn’t trying to trick him, but I also didn’t want his opinion swayed before he actually tasted them.
Do you know that espresso powder truly can be a secret weapon when using cocoa or chocolate in recipes? Yep! Espresso powder is definitely chocolates best friend because it enhances the flavor which yields a chocolaty richness that otherwise might be lacking.
Since espresso powder is actually a powder made from intense dark coffee crystals, it dissolves quickly and therefore incorporates well into both dry and liquid mixtures. It makes a lovely addition to both sweet and savory recipes. You really should try using it sometime.

I tore a muffin apart so that you could see all of the chocolaty goodness! Check out all of the mini chocolate chips! YUM!
One recipe yields 12 regular size muffins and 8 to 10 jumbo muffins. (Pictured are gluten-free jumbo muffins.)
You will need to adjust baking times when making mini or jumbo muffins. Muffins freeze well for up to two weeks.
