Coffee Cake Muffins

We had some yummy muffins today.  My boys are on fall break right now, so we get to have leisurely breakfasts instead of the rushed ones we are used to.  We had hot muffins for breakfast, and we used up some of my cold cereal supply, so two positivies :)  These were easy to make, and came together quite quickly, but I made some changes to the recipe.  The original recipe is called Maple Coffee Cake Muffins, but I didn't have the maple and brown sugar cereal since I don't love maple, so I used original frosted mini wheat, I added in some cinnamon with the dry ingredients and the streusely topping, and I added some vanilla and almond extracts to the wet ingredients.  This gave the muffins plenty of flavor, and the calories only went up to 180/muffin with regular buttermilk and my add-ins.  If you are looking forward to getting rid of cereal, this is a great way to do it!  Owen and I both gave it an 8, and Noah gave them a 0 because I had to wake him up to eat, and somehow he's turned out exactly like Aaron and is a grump if you wake him up :)  Oh well.  These really are good, and a pretty healthy breakfast.  I won't say what I'm going to post next, because the truth is I'm doing terribly at sticking with my plan.  So surprise for the next entry!
