Simple Cinnamon Muffins

When it’s 10 am on a Sunday, with a brunch get together at 11 am, you need to pull together something quick and delicious! These simple muffins are gently sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar and are a huge crowd pleaser. Fresh baked goods are great at making everyone think you devoted hours of time… when really these muffins take about 30 minutes to make 🙂

These muffins have a light flavor that can be spiced up with some chocolate chips or blueberries. Or you can simply enjoy the cinnamon sugar version 🙂
