Brown Sugar Cinnamon Muffins

I thoroughly enjoy cinnamon. I’ve been on a fall spice kick for quite some time now. Nothing beats cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves all mixed up into something. They are warm and spicey and homey and wonderful. This recipe doesn’t have all of those but it’s still pretty tastey! My house likes muffins. They are quick, easy and filling to eat and just as quick and easy to whip up. I was inspired to make these yummy guys for a quick gran and go breakfast!


1 3/4 cup all purpose flour

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup milk

1/3 cup of brown sugar


3 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.

1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, egg, vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon, oil and milk all together in a bowl. I used a hand whisk to mix it all together until it was smooth.

2. In a seprate bowl mix the 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. This will be sprinkled on top.


2. Line muffin tray with liners. Use a 1/4 to fill each liner.

3. Sprinkle each muffin with the brown sugar/cinnamon


4. Bake for 15 minutes or until a knife poked into the center comes out clean. I love how they puffed up!


They are definitely best if eaten warm! Store in an air tight container (if they happen to last that long)!

Makes 1 dozen. This is a very easily double-able recipe and is highly suggested!

Nanner Muffins

I call banana’s nanners. Tomatoes are maters and potatoes are taters. I figure my vocabulary is so vast most of the time, the world can handle a few goofball words.

I personally am not a fan on bananas. Eric and Jake like bananas. Eric buys banana’s, they eat a few and leave the rest on purpose so that I bake with them. In typical fashion, I found a few muffin recipes, blend them together and came out with these gems.

2-3 rip bananas (peals are all brown and gross looking)

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons of…….MAPLE SYRUP! My extra special ingredient that makes them OH SO YUMMY

Dash of cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup dried oats

1-1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

Pre-heat oven to 350

1. With a fork mash up the nanners.

2. Incorporate the eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar, syrup and oats. It will be pretty runny.

3. Slowly add in 1 cup of flour and baking powder. Depending on the size of the bananas and eggs you may need to add another 1/2 cup or so to reach the consistency of a typical batter.

4. Fill muffin tins about 2/3 of the way full

5. Bake 10-12 minutes or until a knife comes out clean

Quick, easy and super delicious! Sugar can be omitted completely if chosen because of the syrup. You can also use flavored syrup. I bet blueberry syrup would be delightful! I like adding the oats for a little extra umph to fill your belly, but they too can be omitted!
