If you’re looking for moist , fluffy muffins that you can enjoy for breakfast and that double as a sweet treat, look no further than the best cinnamon muffins ever! We are a muffin loving family, and these Cinnamon Muffins are one of the most loved muffins in our house. These delicately spiced muffins topped generously with cinnamon sugar are perfect with a cup of hot coffee.

To make these cinnamon muffins, it requires basic ingredients, one bowl, and a short baking time. I mean you can easily whip up a batch of these homemade muffins on a weekend morning. I love that they are easy & fast to make. And that they are made with pantry staples! 

These muffins are great for breakfast and just as good as a sweet afternoon snack with coffee or tea. I love whipping up a batch of these quick cinnamon muffins when I have guests over.
