I am slightly obsessed with breakfast. Actually, I am obsessed with the morning.
I love everything about the morning. Waking up, starting a new day, listening to my podcasts, and eating food. I just love the whole idea of a new day. There is so much to be done. There are endless possibilities. I sound like a self-help book, but what’s new?
Even if you’re not a morning person, you can’t deny the joy breakfast food can bring. I mean, you can basically eat dessert. Pan(CAKES) — what?! Donuts — fried, iced, and delicious! Oatmeal — filled with nuts, raisins, and bananas! Eggs — in a million different ways!
Ok. I know, you can’t eat indulgent breakfasts every morning, but when you do — it is absolutely amazing.
If breakfast was a girl, she would be an old soul who bakes on the weekend. She would love fresh flowers, chocolate, and floral print. She would love bakeries, playing board games, and reading the news. Oh, wait. That’s me. 😉
These muffins are incredibly easy to make — and can make any morning 100% better.
