2 cups all-purpose (plain) flour
1/2 cup granulated (white) sugar
2 teaspoons instant coffee or espresso powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup fat-free buttermilk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup oil
1 large egg
1/2 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350◦F. Grease or line muffin cups.
In a large bowl, stir together the first seven dry ingredients. Make a well in the center. In a separate medium bowl, mix the next four wet ingredients. Add to well, stir until just moistened. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Divide batter evenly among prepared cups. Bake for about 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Makes about 12 muffins.
