Cinnamon {Stud} Muffins featuring Chameleon Cold Brew & Austin Honey

Where there's a whisk there's a way.

The perfect way to start your day: Enjoy delicious protein-packed breakfast muffins featuring local favorites.

We'll be honest with y'all----these lovely muffins were actually intended to be meringues. You know...those fluffy little yummy cookie drops. But, as it turns out, you need either a blender or arms like the Hulk to properly make them. We have neither of those things.

So, after an hour of whisking our biceps away, we put our brains together and improvised. And we have to admit, the fluffy breakfast muffins that came out at the end were even more bomb.com than any meringue! Where there's a whisk, there's a way. 

 

Shopping local is important to us. Austin supports us so that we can support our favorite ATX brands. 

Which is why we chose to develop a specialty recipe featuring our go-to coffee, Chameleon Cold Brew, as well as our SFC Farmer's Market fave, Austin Honey.

We visited the SFC @ Downtown market a few weeks ago and met Raul, one of the beekeepers and owners of Austin Honey. After striking up a conversation with him about how he got into the honey business, we found out that before moving to Austin, Raul lived for many years in the same area of the Chicago suburbs where we grew up!

Talk about a small world!

 

Raul and his son-in-law produce top-notch honey by making each batch of Austin Honey as Austin-y as possible. They partner with 7 local organic farms to develop apiaries (collections of beehives) that pollinate the agriculture present on the land of each farm. For this reason, the honeys have unique tastes that encompass the flavors of Austin based on their location. 

And these flavors added the perfect sweetness to play off of the spicy bean and smooth vanilla blend of the Mexican Coffee Chameleon Cold Brew.
