Okay, so it’s the start of a new year, and I’m currently in a full-on, madly in love, inseparable relationship with healthy breakfast smoothies! I seriously can’t get enough of them. I’ve been trying out different ingredients and variations, and I’ve almost gotten it down to a science for delicious, vitamin-rich, protein-packed smoothies. Should I share some of the recipes here on the blog? Are you up for the whole “green smoothie” thing? Cause I can tell you right now, I’ve never had more energy or felt so good!
BUT until I send you on the path to green smoothie Heaven, you need to try these Coffee Cake Muffins! I’m a big fan of regular coffee cake, and these muffins are right on point… The muffin itself is flavored with plenty of cinnamon and of course, some strong brewed coffee. Coffee = Good, in my book! I also add a delicious fruity filling in the middle that is super easy with the help of a handy kitchen shortcut. Every good coffee cake has a thick layer of crunchy cinnamon sugar topping, and this one is even better with the addition of chopped walnuts! The icing on the cake, quite literally, is a sugary sweet vanilla glaze drizzled all over the muffin tops (wait… don’t say muffin top!), the TOP of the muffins, that completes the perfect coffee cake, muffin-style!
Bottom line, these muffins are the bomb.com! Yes, I just said that. They really are every bit as delicious as classic coffee cake, but in cute, little individual portions. See, portion control! I’m always looking out for ya. 😉
