Chocolate Coffee Flour Muffins

Coffee flour is not just another superfood

Coffee flour is not just any other superfood. It checks off all the boxes of the perfect alternative baking flour, and then some; it’s nutritious, gluten-free, and easy-to-use. But the best part is that coffee flour is more than just a great baking product to keep in your pantry. It was born from a mission of sustainability.

Every year, billions of pounds of coffee fruit are discarded as a byproduct of coffee production. Instead of leaving the fruit to rot as waste, coffee flour was created to convert the leftover fruit into a tasty, nutritious flour that can be used for baking, cooking, and making beverages. High in fiber, protein, and antioxidants, coffee flour is also naturally gluten-free. Not only is our coffee flour a perfectly versatile ingredient, it also helps create jobs for farmers and protect the environment.
