Muffins are one of those things we always take for granted. We see them every day, mostly when we’re in Starbucks waiting for our delicious salted caramel frap. Muffins are one of those things that you never say “Oh wow! That’s a good f’ing muffin!” It’s mostly an impulse buy to curb your appetite. Well, it’s time we change our thinking on these warm, satisfying breakfast item. One of my fave food blogs, Let Me Eat Cake, shared this amazing looking recipe. Enjoy!
