Cinnamon Muffins – light and fluffy muffins coated in cinnamon and sugar
I have seen this recipe for cinnamon muffins on a couple blogs this week, For the Love of Cooking and Eat Yourself Skinny. My son would live on muffins if he could, add cinnamon, and you have a hit! These looked so good, I just had to make them. Who doesn’t like a muffin that is coated in cinnamon and sugar? They were really quick and easy to make too! Of course the leftovers are in the freezer waiting for the next school morning when muffins are requested.
Homemade cinnamon rolls would probably be the breakfast of choice almost daily here, but we all know that isn’t an option! But with these you can still get that sweet cinnamon flavor you want in something quick and easy.
I always have a freezer stocked with muffins. I have yet to find one that doesn’t freezer perfectly. These cinnamon muffins are no exception. Just place in a resealable plastic bag once they are cool and they are perfect for breakfast or snacks all week long. These chocolate chip muffins are pretty much always in our freezer.
I recently remade the muffins to update the photos for this post. My son came home from school and asked if he could have one. He wasn’t sure what flavor they were, or anything more than they were a muffin and he could see cinnamon on the outside. After his first bite the said “you have made these before.” After almost 6 years, and 50 muffins recipes, he remembered them.
You can also make these cinnamon muffins into mini muffins. That way you get a little more cinnamon and sugar coating in each bite. If you find that the sugar is not sticking to your muffin, you can brush it very lightly with butter before dipping. That will ensure cinnamon and sugar on the outside of each bite.

- Divide the batter into a prepared muffin tin. You will want to spray with non-stick spray instead of using liners for this recipe. Bake for about 15 minutes.
- Mix the last 3 Tbls of sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon together in a bowl. After the muffins come out and have cooled enough so you can handle them, roll them around in the sugar to coat all sides.
