Coffee cake is one of those delicious morning treats that you enjoy when you’re splurging…whether it be on vacation, or just after a rough day.
Typical coffee cake recipes are loaded with tons and tons of dairy and excess sweetener.
I created these better-for-you whole wheat blueberry coffee cake muffins as a breakfast treat that you don’t have to feel guilty about!
Silk almond creamer is my go to coffee creamer.
Ever since discovering Silk, my husband and I use it exclusively in our coffee.
I love that Silk is dairy free and has no artificial colors or sweeteners!
It’s so convenient that Walmart stocks these creamers.
My favorite is the vanilla flavor, while Robbie likes the caramel.
I used Silk Caramel Almond creamer both in this coffee cake muffins recipe, and in the glaze.
It adds a subtle nutty sweetness that is perfect for coffee cake!
These aren’t your typical coffee cake muffins.
They are dairy free, whole wheat, and not overly sweet.
I love these muffins because they are just sweet enough without being sickeningly sweet.
Have you tried Silk Almond Creamer? What’s your favorite flavor?
