Step 1: Ingredients



1 egg

⅓ cup sugar

1 8oz package cream cheese, softened

¾ cup chocolate chips


⅓ cup coconut oil, melted

1 Tablespoon vinegar

1 cup dark brewed coffee, hot

⅓ cup chocolate chips

1 tsp. Vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1 ½ cups flour

¾ cup sugar

¼ cup cocoa powder

Step 2: Preparation

Line muffin tins with muffin liners. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 3: Filling

Prepare the filling by whisking together the cream cheese, egg, and sugar until thoroughly combined. Add in the ¾ cup of chocolate chips, stir just to incorporate, then set to the side for future use.

Step 4: Dry Ingredients

In a small/medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, salt, sugar, and cocoa powder.

Step 5: Wet Ingredients

Pour ⅓ cup chocolate chips into very hot coffee in a small container. Whisk to combine. In a large bowl, whisk together melted coconut oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Pour in coffee mixture, and stir.

Step 6: Mix It All Together

Add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients, and whisk until just combined.

Step 7: Fill It Up

Fill each muffin tin mostly with the batter mix, then drop a spoonful of cream cheese filling in the middle of each.

Step 8: Bake It & You're Done!

Bake for around 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the Batter portion comes out clean. Do not over bake.
