Recipe Steps:

Make the batter:

  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
  5. Pour the batter into a lined or greased muffin tin, filling the tins all the way full.
  6. Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon and brown sugar.

Bake the muffins:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Bake the muffins for 23-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Serving Suggestions:

Enjoy these muffins while warm from the oven. For spreads, try cinnamon butter for a divine richness. Nut butter like almond or peanut butter go wonderfully too and add a bit of protein and savoriness.

Serve them up with yogurt and fruit for breakfast or grab one on the go for a snack.
