A classic banana nut muffin is a perfect baked treat, but sometimes you just need to change things up a bit! These simple muffins just add a bit of coffee to our favorite recipe to give these tasty treats an extra kick! The coffee flavor is just enough for taste but not too overpowering. Makes about 10 jumbo muffins or 16-18 regular muffins
If you are gluten-free, make sure you check the ingredients on the instant coffee. Trust me – lesson learned the hard way that many brands use wheat products in instant coffee. Who knew? I prefer Thrive Market‘s Instant Coffee but check around for your favorite!
