Let’s talk about what happens when you put three of my favorite things (chocolate, coffee, and oatmeal) in a baked good.
The folks at Back in the Day Bakery continue to amaze me with their flavor and texture combinations. The addition of old-fashioned oatmeal to these ultra chocolate-y muffins gives them the illusion of health and wholesomeness. It is the new year after all- let’s get healthy (while still eating luscious muffins)!
While warm, these muffins have a strong coffee flavor that mellows as they cool. The second day, these muffins have a rich chocolate flavor and soft texture with just a whisper of java.
Baking through The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook certainly isn’t going to help me lose weight, but it is going to keep me in good food for the foreseeable future!
P.S. If you saw my post on the Back in the Day Bakery Facebook page, hello new friend! You can find all of my Back in the Day Bakery posts on the Stuff I Love page. I’m baking my way through the cookbook. You can follow my adventures on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest!
