French Cinnamon Muffins

French Cinnamon Muffins


These muffins are simple and bombdigity. I’ve made these with both white and wheat flour and both are tasty 🙂 Eat them while they are warm or feel free to toss in a 1/2 cup of berries in the mix.  I changed up this recipe here by cutting the butter and adding more spices.

French Cinnamon Muffins (Cinnamon Toast Crunch Muffins)

1/2 c. Butter, melted and cooled
1/2 c. Sugar
1 Large Egg
1 1/2 c. All Purpose Flour or Wheat Flour
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
1/4 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 c. Milk

Topping (option: cut topping in half*)
1/4 c. Sugar
1/4 c. Butter, melted
1 tsp. Cinnamon



Preheat oven to 350.

In a small bowl mix the sugar and butter until well combined.  Add the egg and vanilla until mixed In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients.  Gently add the sugar mixture and don’t over mix!

Fill a greased muffin pan ¾ full and bake for 20 minutes.  This makes a small batch (about 10 small muffins)

Once cool enough to touch, brush with the melted butter and roll in the cinnamon sugar topping and set on a drying rack. Be careful though, they are addictive.  Last time I made these I ate half the batch before I could share with friends.
