Sometimes I want to eat cake for breakfast…but when I actually do that I end up on a downward spiral for the rest of the day, craving more sugar, more carbs, more unhealthy anything. These muffins can be a great option for those days when I really want the cake without the crap.
This is the nice middle ground between a muffin and a brownie. I tweaked a recipe from Tone It Up. These aren’t dry like some gluten free recipes and they have a rich chocolate flavor because of the coffee. Coffee brings out I learned that from Ina.
So easy. Tasty as a snack or dessert.
