Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins

Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins

Farmer’s market season is in full swing and there is nothing I love more than to wake up early on a Saturday to wander through stalls of fresh produce. My market basket never comes home with the same items each week as I’m slowly eating my way through each vendor’s delicious goods. A few weeks back it was Greek pastries, followed by spring salad mix and then this week’s find – blueberries!

Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins

While I could have happily eaten my way through the pint, I set a handful aside to bake a batch of blueberry crumble coffee cake muffins. I’m not usually a huge muffin fan, but I had a craving hit me recently and this recipe hit the spot! Paired with a cup of tea, this breakfast almost was enough to make me want to jump out of bed in the morning instead of hitting the snooze button.

Cinnamon Apple Protein Muffins

Cinnamon Apple Protein Muffins

I’m guilty of turning Costco runs into date night. Anyone else with me? I mean, the array of samples they offer on the weekend could be the equivalent of going to tapas bar. Am I right! On our last trip, I was intrigued by a large box of Kodiak Cakes mix. I’m usually not a fan of protein powders as they leave a chalky taste in my mouth, but I decided to give this cake mix a go.

Cinnamon Apple Protein Muffins

Pancakes were my first attempt seeing as the mix is advertised as flapjack and waffle mix. I was surprised on how fluffy they turned out and quickly became a fan. Since the pancakes worked out so well, I thought I would push my baking luck and try a muffin recipe. They came out of the oven smelling like a fall day and almost made me wish the leaves were changing color outside. Luckily, regardless of the season, these protein packed muffins are prefect for breakfast on the go.
