Coffee Walnut Muffins

Coffee Walnut Muffins

Coffee and walnut together lend a robust flavor to these bite-sized breads. They go well with both, coffee and tea. These old-fashioned muffins tend to turn out a little denser than the store-bought ones. Also, they aren’t very sweet, so you can engage in without guilt. After you finish the third (may be fourth, fifth) one, just think about the nutritional aspect it carries. The nutritional justification you give yourself will help you down one more.
