It’s pretty obvious that I love coffee and I love food (as you can see clearly on my Instagram.) When I was given the chance to get creative with Atlas Coffee Club, I decided to combine my love for coffee and my love for sweet treats; I used coffee in my cooking!
Atlas Coffee Club is a monthly subscription coffee service, where you can get exotic coffee, like the one I used to bake, delivered right to your door! It’s great because not only do you get to enjoy coffee from around the world, but Atlas Coffee Club also provides you with the tasting profile for each coffee as well as brewing recommendations.
I tried out the Midnight Blend because I love dark roast coffee and also because the tasting notes on this coffee are dark chocolate and caramel. This coffee was great to bake with, but I’ve also enjoyed brewing full pots of it!
There are a lot of foods that can be made using coffee, mostly desserts, but also a great ingredient for breakfast treats. The main thing that I made was this delicious Coffee Toffee Banana Bread, but I’ve also picked out a few other recipes that are perfect for this Atlas Coffee Club coffee.
Coffee Toffee Banana Bread | I have to say, this banana bread was exceptional and not just because I made it. The tasting notes from the Midnight Blend added to the sweetness of the banana bread in such a perfect way. If you like coffee, toffee, and banana’s, you should definitely try out this recipe!
