Are you looking forward to cooler weather and hot coffee? While I love the sunshine, fall time is one of my favorite times of the year. In-between coordinating new [pre]school schedules, home projects, and my career, sometimes I like to find a moment and simply enjoy all things fall– because who doesn’t smile at their first sip of pumpkin? I am a total nerd, but fall spices, are delicious in coffee beverages. Today, I am sharing an easy fall breakfast and coffee for you to enjoy once you get to your desk.
We always think of Starbucks® Coffee as the quintessential brand for all things pumpkin spice. For busy moms like us, Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods available at Giant Eagle are ideal.
When you stop by Giant Eagle, you can find the Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods in the aisle with the other coffees and teas. Super convenient to find, put into your cart, and happily enjoyed later– when it’s quiet. 😉
The Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods are the perfect combo of great tasting coffee, and fall flavors. This tasty 2-part coffee beverage is not just a traditional K-Cup® pod. It’s a Caffè Latte K-Cup® pod that comes with pumpkin flavored tube of delicious goodness that you pour into your coffee mug before you fill it with the K-Cup® pod coffee.
I’m already in love—it tastes just like fall in a cup!
What Pairs Perfectly with Busy Moms & a Simple Fall Breakfast?
When it comes to breakfast, I am known to skip it or toss a protein bar as I run out the house with Jordan & the kids. I felt like the Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods deserved something equally spiced– but easy enough for me to enjoy in the mornings.
The Easiest 4 Ingredient Zucchini Walnut Muffins
These little muffins are only 4 ingredients and are perfect for freezing. They are a no-excuse way to enjoy an amazing breakfast– even as a mom on the run. I like to freeze them after baking them and pop them in our microwave at work to enjoy them warm.
After I mix the muffins together and scoop them into the muffin pan, I like to add any leftover shredded zucchini pieces to the top. These pieces make the final appearance look more bakery-esque than busy mom style. Anything I can do to give myself a treat– without actually running more errands is a win for me!
Lastly, as the muffins come out of the oven, I broil them for 2-3 minutes. Since the mix is traditionally thinner than most muffin mixes, the broil gives the top a harder crisper texture but leaves the inside perfectly cakey. Watch them for over-browning!
Taking a moment for yourself doesn’t need to be hard. Bake up these easy muffins and enjoy a Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods.
When it’s time to pack lunch for the day, be sure to add some muffins and Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods. Don’t feel guilty for enjoying a warm fall breakfast and a hot cup of spiced coffee while you read through your emails. You deserve it!
