My kids have officially decided they do not like cold cereal for breakfast.  There are boxes in our cupboards that have been there since last month…or longer.  I should probably clean out that cupboard because I’m sure they are stale by now.  We started keeping our cereal in some pourable plastic containers from Walmart to help keep the cereal fresher longer.  But even that can’t keep it fresh for over a month of no one eating it.

I think I have discovered the cereal eating problem…they have a new love.  It is called “Mom Made More Muffins” love.   Making a yummy breakfast the day before has become one of my favorite things to do.  I actually think I make more breakfast things than regular sweets.  Yes, I know that might seem surprising to you since most of what I post are sugary goods.

I need to start sharing more muffins and breads with you because I honestly think those are the things people might actually make from my site.  Everyone eats (or should be anyway) breakfast.

These Heath Latte Muffins are made with coffee, Heath coffee creamer, and Heath toffee bits for a fun muffin twist.  My kids gobbled them down after school and again for breakfast the next morning.  If you are opposed to your children having coffee, go ahead and substitute milk in place of the coffee.  You can use any flavor coffee creamer if you can’t find the Heath flavor.

The amount of coffee and caffeine in each muffin is not enough for me to keep these goodies from my kids.  Although we have been known to let our kids have a tiny cup of coffee with creamer, so obviously I have no problem caffeinating my own kiddos.  I know some people feel strongly about this, so I wanted to share an alternative to the recipe.

    So at first I thought I saw “Healthy Latte Muffins” and I was like oh okay cool I’m interested. But then I re-read and I was all “OH MY GOD THERE IS TOFFEE IN THIS MUFFIN” and almost fell out of my chair. Love the coffee, the creamer, and the toffee – everything just works so perfectly in this muffin :D

    Have you ever tried these in bread form? I can never get my muffins to come out of their liners, so I do bread loaves instead usually.

      I have only made these in muffin tins. You could always spray your muffin tin with non stick spray and not use the liners. PAM baking spray works really well for getting food out of pans without sticking. I have also found that fresh muffins tend to stick to liners, but if you let them sit over night they come right out.

    I have company coming and want to make these muffins, they look delicious. Am i suppose to use liquid or powder coffee creamer?
