About Us

These ridiculously soft and moist dark chocolate banana oat muffins flavoured with espresso are perfect for a morning or post workout snack!  They make for a semi-healthy and delicious breakfast or afternoon snack.

Dark Chocolate and Coffee is one of our favorite combinations, the flavours just work so well together and accentuates the chocolate intensifying it creating more of an adult flavour that is so delicious.

We added some bananas and oats to increase the amount of protein which is something your body craves especially if you’re having these for a post workout snack or breakfast on the go. We want to make sure your kick starting your day with a small amount of protein and of course espresso which will give you a boost of energy satisfy your hunger.

If you have ripe bananas at home this is a great way to incorporate them into a delicious snack everyone will enjoy. If you’re making these with your kids or want a kid friendly version just leave out the shot of espresso and if you want a slight mocha taste you can still add the tablespoon of instant coffee which will help give the muffins that mocha/coffee taste and adds a bit of nuttiness paired with the oats.

After our morning workouts we enjoyed one of these lovely dark chocolate espresso muffins. Their perfect for a quick snack on the go especially since we like to do our errands right after a workout and are always on the go.

We hope you enjoyed our muffins! Don’t forget to tag us on social media and share your recipes with us!
