Mini Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins

I love love love cinnamon!!  I never find cinnamon chips in Montreal, but whenever I go down to Vermont, I buy a few bags to make some baked goodies!!

This recipe didn't have any cinnamon chips, but instead of adding some cinnamon - I just added about a cup of cinnamon chips!!

Mini Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins
From 1500 Best Bars, Cookies, Muffins, Cakes & More

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon (didn't use as I used cinnamon chips)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk (used skim)
1/3 cup butter or margarine,melted
Added about 1 cup of cinnamon chips

In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, allspice and nutmeg.

Make a well in the center.

In another bowl, combine egg, milk and margarine, beating until well blended.

Add to dry ingredients, stirring only until moistened and blended.

Do not overmix.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin, filling cups to the top.

Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 14 minutes or until muffins are done.

NOTE: For an extra delicious muffin, melt 1/4 cup (50 mL) margarine and brush over tops of warm muffins.
Mix together 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cinnamon and 2 tbsp (25 mL) sugar and sprinkle over tops.
