Chai Coffee Cake Muffins
Chai Coffee Cake Muffins – A flavorful spin on a classic breakfast favorite. Coffee cake muffins flavored with chai spices and topped with a delicious crumb topping!

For my second recipe this week, I decided to make chai coffee cake muffins! Now these little bite sized breakfast treats are a fun cross between a chai tea latte and coffee cake. They have all of the flavor that a chai tea latte has but with the streusel crumb topping of a coffee cake!
Now these muffins don’t use any chai tea leaves in them, they are made with just chai spices. It may look like a long list of spices in the recipe but they are all probably in your pantry already or can be skipped if you don’t have 1-2. You can also make these muffins ahead of time for brunch. I usually make them the day before and just warm them up right before serving.
