I am on a muffin kick lately. In fact, I even thought about doing a “Muffin Week” because I have so many recipes to share, but then I decided against it since I have my Cookbook of the Month and Saturdays with Rachael Ray posts that would just mess everything up. Plus, I don’t want to ruin them by giving you too much of a good thing, right? So you may not see a whole week of muffins, but I can guarantee that you’ll see lots of muffins here over the next month(s).

I’ve always love muffins, but we have discovered that our little girl LOVES muffins. Seriously, I don’t think anything else makes her happier. She sees a muffin and you won’t hear the end of it until she gets one (or two). And she can really put them down for a 15-month old. And since I love her so much, I make her muffins. (Don’t worry – as much as she’d love sugary muffins to be her breakfast every morning, I really only make them about once a week!)

These muffins are exactly what I was hoping for. I’m rarely disappointed when I go to one of my family cookbooks for a recipe, and this one did not dissappoint. I did add the cinnamon sugar to the top – the original recipe didn’t have that – but besides that, I didn’t need to change a thing. Super easy, super delicious!

    I made these muffins for my pregnant daughter in law last night. She was craving muffins.
    She ate three in one sitting! I had one this morning with coffee. Oh. My. Soooo good.

    I chose to simply top the muffins with turbinado sugar before baking. Too delicious! This recipe is a home run! Thank you!

  21. Da Bee's Knees says:

    So… I'm back to leave another comment. I am smitten with this recipe!

    I made it AGAIN to go with our late Sunday breakfast yesterday!

    And I plan to whip up a batch to take into work tomorrow, too.

    This recipe will make me the work HERO! Thank you, again!

  22. My name is Momma says:

    I will definitely make again.

  23. Jackie says:

  28. dawn says:

    i did the toothpick test and it wont come out clean… im scared i wight overcook them

  29. diane says:

    We make these muffins all the time now! I make the following changes – 1/2 c. almond or oat flour, 1 1/2 c. regular – TWO tbsp. cinnamon instead of one! – add 1 tsp vanilla – 3/4 c. sugar instead of 1 c. – 1/2 milk, 1/2 yogurt. We (my 3 year old and I) also make a topping for them now, just crushing up TJ’s slightly sweetened walnuts in a bag w/cinnamon and brown sugar, and sprinkling that on top. They are crazy good!!!!! 🙂

  30. Halie says:

    Just made these and ate two right out of the oven..they are amazing =] I love cinnamon and these definitely hit the spot. They are so light and flavorful! Thanks for the recipe!

  31. Vanessa says:

    Just made these! They are great!! My girls love cinnamon and ate two each right out of the oven. Next time I will add a little more cinnamon. My mother-in-law likes them because they are not too sweet!! Great recipe!! And VERY easy!

  32. Olivia L. says:

    These muffins are DELICIOUS!!! I baked these and I found them more moist if I used only egg whites, but otherwise, 10/10.

  33. Sandra says:

    These are very good! I wanted a cinnamon muffin that wasn’t too sweet and not too heavy on the cinnamon. I was a tiny bit worried after I mixed the batter since it was very cinnamon colored but the final result was perfect for me! It made 12 muffins in my muffin pan – not the oversized ones but these may be slightly larger than a standard cupcake pan. I had another pan ready just in case but didn’t need it.

    I’ve been trying different cinnamon muffins recipes, and have been disappointed until this one! They’re delicious and exactly as moist as I wanted. Thank you!
