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.

Sounds like the boys from One Direction are going their separate ways, or multiple directions. If these rumors hold up and the tabloids weren't in fact just having an out the ordinary slow day in need of some controversy, then we're looking at the end of a successful six-year career that all began in 2010 on a UK segment of 'The X Factor.'


This boy band was the first band in history to have all four of their first albums make a collective splash on the Billboard 200. Plus their body of work considered in its entirety is certified platinum by the RIAA, except for 'Made In The A.M..'


US Weekly states that Liam Payne's aiming to make a move to get into production, while Harry Styles will attempt a career in acting, and Louis Tomlinson's going to give the whole being a father thing a run for its money.


Here's to what was a fruitful career, and whatever's up ahead for these dominant pop stars.

The most recent exciting addition to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London calendar is a three course Valentine's Day meal plated and served within Hogwarts Great Hall, which is also set to include a hearty supply of Butterbeer, a tour of the studio, and a free wand.


Perhaps the biggest catch here is this meal's about to wipe out your account at Gringotts Wizarding Bank.


But hey, you could always hit up Harry Potter for a friendly loan, right?


No really though, the whole show costs £247.50 ($357) per person, or £495 ($714) for two people.

In all honesty the Star Wars reference and mustache were on point. Anyone else on board for voting Colbert in for a crucial cameo role?


Don't forget to check out the most recent GoPro footage to surface, which provides an all too close and personal full 15 minutes of on-the-ground action. The mission, 'Cisne Negro' or Black Swan, already possesses all the dark and dramatic appeal any modern day, crime-addled thriller needs to make a splash on the big screen.

Is it just us or is Brad Pitt the true life Benjamin Button? The strapping lad is straight up aging backwards.


These two should consider hosting/presenting at awards shows together more often. Pretty much anyone was helpless to stare at their ridiculous, effortless display of handsome.
