These Maple Cinnamon Muffins taste like a cross between pancakes and coffee cake. Mix up these easy muffins for a delicious make ahead breakfast.
We’ve started to fall into a morning routine now that William is two months old and started to get into a more predictable schedule. He usually wakes up around 7 but falls back to sleep shortly after nursing. That means I get some time to start the coffee, eat breakfast and get ready for the day.
While I love making big breakfasts on days off, most days I go with an easy breakfast like oatmeal, cereal or something I can make ahead like these muffins. These are especially good on the days where William doesn’t go right back to sleep and I am trying to grab something quick to eat while taking care of him.
I’ve made blueberry muffins, apple muffins, and chocolate muffins, but this time I wanted to try something different. I’ve been loving the flavor of maple this Fall, so I decided to give that a try for these muffins.
They ended up tasting almost like a pancake that’s covered with maple syrup. Yum! The cinnamon topping reminds me of coffee cake. Those are two of my favorite breakfasts, so these were a win!
We are finally starting to get some nice weather here in Florida. One morning, I need to enjoy one or two of these muffins on the front porch with a mug of coffee. Make a batch yourself and do the same!
