Heaven in a muffin cup – soft coffee infused muffins with an oaty crumble topping. The smell of these coming fresh out of the oven is just divine, and definitely something to start the day with! You could dark chocolate chips to the muffin mixture for extra indulgence, or even make this batch into a cake for a bigger serving. The touch of peanut butter goes superbly with the flavours and adds an attractive drizzle. One of my favourite muffin recipes to date! ūüôā
