Life gets busy, and when you're in a rush, something usually gets skipped — like breakfast. I often find myself running out the door without even having coffee or a small nibble, which leaves a morning meal to the coffee shop or work's snack area. I made the decision to stop insulting my fellow commuters with my grumbling tummy and start getting organized with premade breakfasts — like these sinfully good coffee cake muffins. They're so good that you'll make sure to stop and grab one while you're walking out the door.
