Sweet and tender, these Skinny Raspberry Coffee Cake Muffins with Almond Streusel are secretly healthy and bursting with flavor! Something worth getting up for each morning!
When my parents came back from visiting Europe, they gushed all about how they started their days with thee best cappuccinos with a side of flakey, luscious croissants. And why not add a schemer of chocolate hazelnut spread while you are at it? Sadness rushed over me as I started my mornings with a toasted english muffin and good schemer of peanut butter.
Although I have a special place in my heart for peanut butter, sometimes I crave an indulgent breakfast. Much like my craving for brunch with mimosas, I often don’t get to indulge unless I put quite a bit of effort into my morning meal. Which is extremely unlikely when you wake up starving at 6am.
Let’s not talk about how ravishing this babe is in the morning. Takes his love of breakfast after his mama…
So last week when another carb craving kicked up, I indulged and headed to the kitchen. Yes it was well past breakfast time, but I am no rule follower and adore breakfast anytime of the day. I morphed my blueberry coconut coffee cake bars and baked them into muffins. Instantly a good idea.
Tender coconut flour makes these muffins super light and fluffy, but won’t weigh you down. Another aspect? They aren’t loaded down with sugar and butter. Rather maple syrup and coffee spiked milk, International Delight Vanilla Iced Coffee. Because we all know coffee is a must with coffee cake.
And we can’t ignore the streusel because everyone knows that the sugar crumbly topping is the best part. No ordinary topping though. I lightened it up with stevia brown sugar, sliced almonds and cinnamon. Adding a layer in the middle, along with coating the top of the muffins ensures each mouthful is filled with the brown sugar almond goodness.
I foresee many mornings and afternoons enjoying one or two to treat myself. International Delight is all about making you aware of your time and ensuring you are enjoying at least 10 minutes to your self! And who am I to argue with that?
