Chocolate Espresso Muffins are a cinch to make in an Air Fryer! These delicious breakfast or snack treats take 25 minutes, from start to finish!
Measure flour, sugar, cocoa powder, espresso powder (or instant coffee), baking powder, salt and baking soda into a medium sized bowl. Whisk together to fully combine.
In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, egg, vanilla, oil and vinegar. Once combined, pour into the bowl with the flour, cocoa powder, etc. Whisk well, to fully mix ingredients, and remove any lumps in the batter.
You will need muffin tins small enough to fit your air fryer basket. Spray muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray OR fill with paper liners, and then lightly spray. Divide batter between 8 muffin cups. Each muffin cup should be about 3/4 of the way full.
Preheat air fryer to 300°F. Once preheated, quickly but carefully place filled muffin tin into the basket. Be careful, because air fryer is hot! Cook at 300°F for 15 minutes. Check for "done-ness" at the 13 minute mark. Pause machine and check, by inserting a toothpick into center of a muffin. Continue to cook until done, and toothpick comes out clean. Transfer pan from air fryer basket to a wire rack to cool. Let cool for 5 minutes, before removing muffins from pan. Cook remaining batch of muffins, and enjoy, once cooled to room temperature!
Prepare muffins following instructions above. Cook muffins at 375°F for 15-20 minutes. Insert a toothpick into center of the muffin to check for doneness. If it comes out clean, they are ready! Let cool for 5 minutes before removing them from pan.
**No espresso powder? Substitute 3/4 teaspoon finely ground instant coffee granules!**
