Cinnamon Muffins

Happy Halloween! Are you doing anything to celebrate/dressing up? TJ and I never really do too much for Halloween, and we don’t really get trick-or-treaters, so I think we’ll be spending the night watching some scary movies and maybe snacking on a spooky-themed treat.

If you’ve got a long night ahead of you though, I’d highly recommend making these cinnamon muffins before you go out, that way when you wake up tomorrow morning, you’ll have an easy, quick, and delicious breakfast to enjoy. The best way that I can describe these muffins is kind of like a snickerdoodle in muffin form, which means they taste awesome! They’re not very sweet, so the cinnamon and sugar mixture on top is nice and gives them the perfect amount of sweetness.
