S'mores Muffins

Hello all!

This is a bit of a short post, as I am so inundated with exciting (and at the same time aggravating) college papers. I am even writing one on (you guessed it!) food! But I couldn't just not tell you how amazing these muffins were.

Do you enjoy s'mores? I do. But s'mores, as delicious as they are, are messy and not easily transportable...until now.

Behold - the beauty that is the s'mores muffin! Sweet, but not overtly so, and perfect (in my opinion) for a quick breakfast or snack on the go. I am usually of this opinion when it comes to muffins, but my friends, I kid you not. These are all the fun of s'mores with less mess, more ease of transport, and thus more enjoyment.

The recipe is from Elle's New England Kitchen, and I am so impressed with how well all of these ingredients blend together. I was a bit concerned about putting actual big chunks of graham crackers into the muffin mix, but they absorb liquid just enough to make them chewy and delicious and a great change in texture amidst the soft muffin.

I hope you enjoy testing out this muffin recipe! Like I said, I am on a bit of a muffin kick, so be prepared for both French Breakfast Muffins AND Maple Banana Oat Muffins!
