Snickerdoodle Muffins

What is your favorite breakfast sugar cereal? We don’t get sugar cereal much in our home, but yesterday there was a beat-up box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch for really cheap at the store, so we bought it. We also bought Apple Jacks, Cheerios and Rice Krispies too, but I had Cinnamon Toast Crunch on the brain. My all-time favorite cereal won’t even last a week. It’s every man for himself when there’s sugary cereal in the house. I’ll enjoy it while I have it, though. You know of my love of peanut butter and chocolate, but what you may not have known is that the cinnamon and sugar combination is a close second.

You can imagine how over-excited I was to try these Bakery-Style Snickerdoodle Muffins. When I took my first bite, all I could say was “WOW.” These were literally the best cinnamon muffins I had ever tasted! The only way to really know how good they are is to taste them yourself, but if there was one word to describe these muffins it would be: truly amazing. I guess that’s two words, but these muffins deserve two words.

For this recipe, we made homemade cinnamon chips. Do you remember when we made these for our cinnamon chip scones? These cinnamon chips are made of cinnamon, sugar, shortening, and vanilla, and they are like bombs of cinnamon in your muffin! Definitely useful for anything cinnamon flavored you want to bake. (Like Snickerdoodles.)

The bombs of cinnamon inside and the cinnamon streusel on top make these a hazard to uncontrolled cinnamon lovers like me. You won’t be able to stop at one muffin!

We wanted to make these muffins jumbo size like bakery-style muffins, which makes 6 muffins. If you don’t want to ruin your diet quite as much by eating a big one, you can also put them into a normal cupcake pan and it would make 12. All you’d have to do then is reduce the oven temperature and the baking time a little bit. Either way, these muffins won’t last very long because of their irresistible flavor and texture!

Ingredients
 

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 3/4 cup cinnamon chips

Topping:

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter (softened, but not melted)

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, beat the egg, milk and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined. Do not overmix. Fold in the cinnamon chips.
  • Fill 6 greased or paper-lined jumbo muffin cups three-fourths full.
  • For the topping, mix together the flour, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Mix in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Divide the streusel evenly over the top of the muffins.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes or the top of the muffin bounces back when you touch it. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

If you'd like to make regular muffins, bake them at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until they test done.

HELP! The ingredient list calls for baking powder, but the instructions calls for baking soda.

Please clarify, thank you.

Where can I purchase the cinnamon chips? Is there something else that can be used in place of the cinnamon chips if I can not find them?

The link to the DIY cinnamon chips didn’t work for me. I found it by going onto your scone page, and then in the comments. Did you use more baking powder to offset no cream of tarter? I’m a huge fan of snickerdoodles and the base with the top so far seems delish but I’m tempted to sneak in some cream of tartar to make them extra snickerdoodle-y. Thanks for the fabulous recipe! We are baking them right now 🙂

These were great! I was cautious at first because the base it pretty basic, but the cinnamon chips (I used Hershey) and streusel add a lot of flavor! They were really easy to make too (always a plus when you have a preschooler helping bake)!
