Cinnamon Chip Muffins

Cinnamon chip muffins make the perfect breakfast or snack any day of the week. Sweetened with cinnamon chips, sugar and a cinnamon-sugar top, these muffins are perfect!

I am back on the sweets train and I have a few not so healthy sweet treat desserts coming at you! Balance y’all, you gotta live a little. Just because you make a dozen of your favourite muffin doesn’t mean you eat them all.

By the time, I give some muffins to a friend and my husband eats a few I only usually have 2-3 myself. Especially when they are that good and don’t last long.

Cinnamon chip recipes are usually scones, but I wanted to make something simple using cinnamon chips. Also, my mom had to send me the cinnamon chips because for some reason here in Northern Alberta there is none.

These cinnamon chip muffins are super easy to make, they taste great and they make a great breakfast with a hot coffee, tea or cold glass of milk. The cinnamon-sugar top totally gives these muffins an extra kick.
