Banoffee Caramel Muffins

on Jul 13, 2017 |

The perfect mix up of all of our favorite breakfast flavors baked into a perfectly tender muffin. These days, my family can’t seem to get enough of freshly baked muffins. Muffins are such a versatile breakfast vehicle and an easy on-the-go meal or snack. I try to have a batch or two made per week  and they store perfectly in the freezer. Today, I am sharing one of my favorite combinations, Banana-Coffee-Toffee and Caramel. These flavors pack a punch on your tastebuds and are a tasty treat first thing in the morning.
