Whole Wheat Coffee Muffins

Kick off your morning with a Whole Wheat Coffee muffin that’s healthy, contains gut-friendly kombucha and your early morning fave, coffee.




Coffee Infused Butter (optional):

  • 8 tablespoons (113 grams) unsalted butter or ghee
  • 2 tablespoons (10 grams) whole coffee or espresso beans (not ground)


For the Muffins:


  1. Optional: In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter or ghee. Immediately add the coffee beans and cover. Set aside to steep while you prepare the muffin batter 
  2. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°F). Grease a 6-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray and set aside 
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and espresso powder. Set aside. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, honey, and brewed coffee until well incorporated. Add mixture to the dry ingredients then pour in kombucha, mixing until just combined. Do not overmix 
  4. Scoop the muffin mixture into the prepared muffin tin. Bake at 425°F (220ºC) for 5 minutes then lower oven temperature to 375°F (190°C) for another 8-10 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of muffin. Toothpick should come out clean or with just a few crumbs stuck to it. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin 
  5. Meanwhile, strain the coffee beans from the melted butter, pressing on the beans with a spoon or back of a spatula to extract all the butter that you can. Place butter in the fridge until solidified. Spread on muffins and enjoy!
