Mocha Pistachio Muffins

Am a coffee lover, i cant start my day without a hot cup of coffee. For this second week of blogging marathon when Srivalli announced the theme, i choosed immediately this interesting theme recipes with chai or coffee. For this first day of my second week of blogging marathon, i prepared quickly this ultimate and super moist mocha pistachio muffins. With loads of dark chocolate,pistachios and instant coffee powder, this muffins are definitely addictive and irresistible.

A prefect super moist muffins to enjoy without any hesitation with a cup of warm milk either for snacks or for breakfast if you like bakes with coffee along with a cup of hot coffee. Do check out the other marathoners running this 19th edition of blogging marathon here.


2cups All purpose flour
3/4cup Sugar
1cup Dark chocolate (chopped)
1tbsp Instant Coffee powder
3tbsp Pistachios (chopped)
1tsp Baking powder
1/4tsp Baking soda
2nos Eggs
1/2cup Oil
1/2cup Yogurt

Beat the eggs and sugar together until this mixture turns pale and smooth.Add the coffee powder and beat again.

Meanwhile, sieve together the flour with baking soda,baking powder and keep aside.

Now melt the chopped chocolate with 1/3cup water in microwave oven and make a smooth chocolate sauce.

Add this chocolate sauce,oil and yogurt to the egg-sugar mixture and beat everything for a while.

Preheat the oven to 350F, gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients with a spatula until the batter turns smooth.Gently fold the chopped pistachios to the batter.

Divide this batter to the already greased muffin pan,springle few chopped pistachios over the batter and bake for 20-25minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Enjoy anytime of the day.
