Perfect breakfast food filled with coffee. A great way to start the day.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We can't think of a better way to start the day than with these banana coffee muffins. These muffins are similar to banana bread. They're moist, soft, sweet, and filled with banana flavor. We love the slight coffee flavor in them. Walnuts add a nice crunch. Grab one and enjoy them on the go or warm at home and enjoy with a cup of coffee.
