Walnut and Espresso Muffins
I love coffee. It’s no secret. So when I can combine Espresso with something especially good for you like walnuts which are rich in Omega 3’s I will jump at the chance to feel less guilty about my espresso consumption. The yoghurt in these helps to keep them moist. Don’t over mix the batter or else they will be tough as boots. . . . . yes I did learn from a few mistakes. But where coffee is involved I will persevere and find a way. LOVE THIS RECIPE !!!
