How do they taste?
These whole wheat chocolate walnut breakfast muffins are so satisfying and wholesome. without all that white flour, a ton of refined sugar and heaps of butter, the muffins today are soft, fluffy and and tender as a cupcake.
How did this magic happen? The credit goes to two beauties here. One black and another white. Drum-rolls for coffee and sour cream my friends!
Sour cream is known to considerably lighten up the baked goods. It was a no brainer here. Adding coffee to these muffins was a last minute decision. I wanted one more flavor to go with walnuts and chocolate. I then stumbled upon my instant coffee jar lying in wait. That was it. Gosh! I am so glad I added it to my muffins.
I am not sure, but I strongly feel it to be true. Adding coffee resulted in a softer and a giant bake! Probably it has something to do with the acidity of coffee reacting with baking soda and sour cream. That's the reason I am calling them magical. 😉
So are you thinking about the taste of coffee in these muffins?
Well you must. These muffins do not scream coffee flavor. But are just filled with a light scent and a noticeable undertone of coffee. Don't you adore how it smells when you get nearby a coffee shop? Even more wonderful than drinking the coffee itself. This muffin right here is no different.
When the mild coffee flavor in these muffins mingles with the loaded toppings of chocolate and walnut, you walk through muffin heaven!
I adore a bake that is made with healthy and feel good ingredients. And when these do not use extra dishes and taste delish, it is a champion in my recipe book. I equally enjoy biting my teeth into this whole wheat chocolate walnut breakfast muffins and soaking my tongue into this berry frosted cake.
WHOLE WHEAT CHOCOLATE WALNUT BREAKFAST MUFFINS SUCCESS TRICK
You are not allowed to over fold the batter. Do it and stay ready to witness a heart breaking-throat choking-fat, dry and chewy muffin in front of you.
If these big guys are too much for you to handle, bake 8 instead of 4. That way you can better retain moistness in them. Even if you over mix them slightly.
I do not prefer my breakfast muffins cloyingly sweet. If you prefer them sweeter, add about 1-2 tablespoons of extra brown sugar/white sugar to suit your palate.
Skip your boring mug of morning coffee and have this coffee scented, walnuts packed and chocolate studded muffin instead! ♥♥♥
