Since the dawn of sliced bread have we not seen such grand ingenious culinary innovation. Yes folks, in large thanks to Brandeis University professor Daniel Perlman, we're about to take a step into a world where you can sustain a legit caffeine buzz (like several cups worth) off a muffin.


During his interview with Eater, Perlman says, "This flour contains 2.5 percent caffeine by weight, so if you were to put 4 grams of this into, say, a breakfast muffin, it would be the equivalent of drinking a cup of coffee."


Hold the phone. Say what now? And yes, it gets better; this flour's derived from green coffee beans, and rich in major health benefits. The roasting process for these green coffee beans helps retain antioxidant chlorogenic acid, which scientists believe can significantly diminish your risk of heart disease and diabetes.


If you're someone who's susceptible to over self-medicating on that java fix, Perlman says not to worry too much. He explains, ""Unlike some bars that are loaded with chemically purified or synthesized caffeine, this is natural food source caffeine. I would expect it to be absorbed a little more gradually than the caffeine in a cup of coffee, so [it would offer] a more sustained release and longer-term stimulation than you get when you drink a cup or two of coffee."


Perlman additionally informed Eater his coffee flour is a "very user-friendly ingredient", meaning it's pleasingly easy to bake with. Put your hands together and give a warm round of applause my fellow novice bakers.

Somehow they got surveillance video from inside his house as he loads up his van with a ridiculous amount of weapons and ammunition. He was allegedly planning on making an attack at the Euro 2016. Although he was clearly up to something, France maintains that they have not yet connected him to a terrorist group.

Ruby Holt spent the majority of her life on a farm in Tennessee, but just before her 101st birthday she finally got to go to the beach.

After discovering she had never been, two employees at her assisted living center applied for a grant through a charity organization called Wish of a Lifetime, which funded her entire trip to the Alabama coast on the Gulf of Mexico.

What did she think after taking a stroll on the sand and putting her feet in the water?

"It's cold."
