Tried and True: Easy Cinnamon Muffins

These delicious cinnamon muffins are so easy to throw together that I make them frequently. They’re a popular request with my family, and I often make them to take to church potlucks and things of that nature because they’re always a hit.

Delicious cinnamon muffins loved by kids and adults alike!
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (you can use half white and half whole wheat if you prefer, but no one in my family complains as long as I get the whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sugar (sometimes I use sucanat, and no one seems to notice a difference)
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • cinnamon-sugar mixture for topping
  1. Heat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg with a fork. Add the milk and blend thoroughly. Add dry ingredients (except cinnamon-sugar topping) and mix well. Add the oil last, stirring to combine.
  3. Spoon into paper-lined muffin cups and sprinkle the tops generously with cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
