Brown Sugar Cinnamon Muffins

Brown Sugar Cinnamon MuffinsA couple of years ago, when I started making homemade breakfast more often, we mixed and matched numerous recipes to form this one. And it is the one that everyone loves! I probably say that a lot, but brown sugar cinnamon muffins really are the breakfast that everyone would eat everyday if we could!

They are sweet, whole wheat and I have to watch myself, so I don’t eat too many! I also pack them in our older kids’ lunches and apparently our daughter’s friend begs her split the muffin with her whenever our daughter brings one to school! 🙂
