Muffins are such a great idea for a quick breakfast, and this is why I love making it so much. It’s not that I eat muffins every morning, but in weekends or whenever I want to indulge a little, muffins are a great treat next to the first coffee cup of the day.
These coffee muffins combine chocolate, almond and coffee and are so easy to make, super delicious and everyone’s favorite.
