Cinnamon Sugar Pancake Muffins

Cinnamon Sugar Pancake Muffins Recipe l

How do you feel about portable breakfasts? Me, I love them! They make busy mornings so much easier! However, I also like sit down breakfast food, like pancakes.

So, when I saw these pancake muffins that Laurie made, I just had to give them a try. I am all for being able to eat pancakes in muffin form!

These muffins didn’t disappoint. They taste just like you are eating pancakes that have been swirled with cinnamon sugar (which makes me want to swirl my next batch of pancakes with cinnamon sugar!).

If you have the time, you can drizzle them with maple syrup, but they taste great plain as there is plenty of flavor throughout the muffin.

Make them the night before and enjoy them the next morning. They taste great at room temperature, or heat them up in the microwave that morning if you are looking for a warm breakfast treat.

Either way, they are a great way to satisfy your pancake craving on even the busiest of mornings!

Hey jeessica could I use lowfat buttermilk instead of non fat? Would it matter too much?
