Chocolate Chip Mocha Muffins

I'm back! It has been a multiple month hiatus. I just really am so bogged down with about 50,000 other things right now, I just don't even have time to bake or cook anything besides cakes for KBTM. And let's be honest, no one wants only cupcake recipes every single week. At least this time it's a breakfast item even though it still has chocolate since I am an addict. If you'll remember I have had multiple instances where I have thought I had a new mole or freckle, then I realize it's just a piece of chocolate that has melted on to me. Yea... so it's quite apparent I have issues.

So, I'm pretty excited because many of you know already I am doing the Team Challenge Half Marathon for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. Tomorrow is an 8 mile run! I ran 8 miles two weeks ago but I'm excited to go at it again. It's only gonna get harder and each week will be my personal farthest distance so that's even more exciting. One little minor issue though, this morning when I opened the door to my office I rammed the door into my big toe. After discussing the pain with the first friend available on chat, we've decided it could possibly be broken. If it isn't I'm in severe pain, I don't even want to explain what it looks like. Let's hope for running's sake that this pain subsides soon so I can actually run my 8 miles tomorrow!

Anyway, back to the muffins. It always makes me think of 'If you give a moose a muffin'. I used to love that book, and I'm getting off topic again. Here's the recipe.

Chocolate Chip Mocha Muffins
Yield ~16-18 muffins

2 cups flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tablespoons instant coffee
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
2 eggs
1 cup milk
2/3 cup oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and chocolate chips. In another bowl, mix the eggs, milk, oil, and sugars together. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture and mix until combined. Fill up muffin tins about 3/4 of the way and bake for about 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
