We have a never-ending love affair with coffee in SHEmazing HQ (who doesn't), so when we came across the beauty that is caffeinated pastries, we got very excited. 

The man behind the magic is biophysicist Dan Perlman from the University in Massachusetts, who has developed coffee flour. 

And guess what? The flour is perfect for baking and can give you as much of a kick as your morning latte. 

"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," Dan told Eater

And better yet, it will slowly release during the whole day, so there's no fear of getting the shakes after two caffeinated cakes at lunchtime. 

It also contains an antioxidant, called chlorogenic acid, which usually gets lost in the coffee roasting process. Many specialists say that this antioxidant can help lower blood pressure and has been linked to treating heart disease and cancer. 

It sounds SUPER to us, now all we have to do is wait for our locals to supply it.
