I have to admit, I’m not much of a breakfast person.
Don’t get me wrong,I really do like breakfast food, it’s just I’m not in the mood really for it in the morning. I really have no appetite in the morning. I don’t know what it is, but I just don’t. Maybe I’d have more motivation if there were fresh baked Cinnabons in my house every morning. You can say you have a cinnamon roll recipe better than Cinnabons, but no, you don’t. Just face it, theirs reign at the top of the cinnamon roll hill kingdom.
Anyways back to breakfast, I like breakfast food but not always in the morning. That is part of the reason why I love baking muffins. Unlike eggs or pancakes, you don’t have to eat them right away. You can make them anytime and eat them at anytime and it’s totally acceptable! These little cinnamon babies are perfect for popping in your little mouth anytime on the go or on the couch. Super simple to make and quite tasty.
oh and pardon the christmas liners….they were all I had available at the time. They’re festive and awesome, so get on the Christmas train of fun with me!
(Makes about 16 minis or 6 regular sized muffins)
1 cup flour (I used half whole wheat, half all-purpose)
1/2 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup milk (I used skim)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line muffins tins with liners.
- Mix melted butter, brown sugar, milk, egg, and vanilla in a large bowl until thoroughly combined. Mix in flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Spoon the batter into prepared muffin tins and set aside.
- Combine 2 Tablespoons white sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle mixture over muffin batter in prepared tins. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes (for minis) or 12-15 minutes (for regular sized muffins) or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center of muffin. Let cool on wire rack and enjoy!
