Muffins. Some people love muffins. Other people hate muffins. I’m a fan of muffins but they have to meet a few requirements before I even consider taking a bite of one. We all know I’m picky but I think I’m being pretty reasonable here.

Muffins MUST NOT be dry! There is nothing worse than taking a bite of a muffin and nearly choking to death because it’s so dry. A muffin is not like a cupcake. A cupcake has a pile of frosting on top to help with the dryness.

Flavor! I want my muffin to scream with flavor. If it’s a blueberry muffin I want to be able to taste blueberry in every single bite. To make sure these muffins were noticeably coffee flavored I made sure to make it extra strong. If you’re one of those people who likes to butter your muffin you could easily add some instant coffee to your butter for a little coffee spread. 

As the muffins bake the scent of coffee fills the air. There’s nothing better than the smell of coffee. I don’t care if you hate the taste of coffee, you can’t deny that coffee is the best smelling drink to ever exist. I love walking down the coffee isles at grocery stores because the smell just makes me ten times more excited about shopping.

Growing up I never ate breakfast. My first meal would be lunch. Now that I’m older breakfast has easily become my favorite meal of the day. In the summer I love having an iced latte with my meal. Since these coffee muffins already have coffee in them I can skip the drink and eat more.
