Cappuccino Chocolate Muffins

I got this recipe from a friend and LOVE it!!!

2 c flour (500 ML ?)
3/4 c sugar
2 1/2 t baking powder
1 T instant coffee
1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1 c milk
1/2 c butter, melted
1 egg
1 t vanilla
3/4 c chocolate chips

In large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, coffee, salt, and cinnamon. In another bowl, blend milk, butter, egg and vanilla. Make a well in center of dry ingredients; add milk mixture and stir just to combine. Stir in chips. Spoon batter into greased muffin tins and bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Remove muffins; finish cooling on rack.

Meg's Substitutions:
Instead of 1 T. instant coffe and 1 c. milk i used 1/3 c. coffee and added milk until i had 1 cup of liquid total.
Instead of white flour I used recently ground hard red wheat flour.
Instead of 3/4 c. sugar I used 1/2 c. sucanut. (if you like really sweet muffins, stick with using 3/4 c. of whichever. my muffins came out just perfect for me, but i know other people are more used to sweet than i am.)
