What? Really? Did I just say that, Coffee Infused Banana Muffins? I did! Then I made a Coffee Infused Cream Cheese Icing! Yeah that's right! mmmmmmmmm and I don't even like coffee!!!

For kicks, I took some leftover salted caramel sauce and drizzled it over the top of some of them too...then it tastes like a Bananas Foster Cappuccino :o)
