I love the flavors of cinnamon and apples in pies, cookies, tarts–you name it, I probably like it.  Around Christmas, I made some Sugar Sprinkled Cranberry Oatmeal Muffins.  They were sooo yummy that I wanted more but with a cinnamon twist.  Why not the classic cinnamon apple flavors we all know and love in an oatmeal muffin?!  Ding, ding, ding… we have a winner!!!  That’s when this delicious Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Breakfast Muffin recipe was created.  It is sweet, moist and perfect to make on a cold winter morning.

My two oldest (2 and 4) love these muffins, and when they love the products of the kitchen they love to help make them.  When they come out of the oven, these muffins are gobbled up before I know it.  I could swear I live in a house of teenagers.  Haha.  With little helpers or not, this recipe comes together quickly and with ease.  Here’s the ingredient lineup.  (I totally missed the coconut oil in the picture.  Sorry!)

Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Muffins

The first thing I like to do is add half the sugar and cinnamon to the diced up apple pieces.  Toss the apples lightly until they are coated in the sweet cinnamon-y mixture. Then set it aside until it’s ready to be added into the muffin batter.

Next, mix all the dry ingredients (dry pancake mix, oats, baking powder together).

Add the eggs, milk, melted coconut oil and vanilla to the dry mix.  Stir it until the ingredients are combined.

Last, add the cinnamon chips and spiced apple pieces.  Fold in until blended.  The muffin batter is done!  That was fast, right?

For easy cleanup I like to use muffin liners.  It’s so awesome how many fun colors and designs muffin liners come in these days.

Using a D20 sized scoop or with a spoon, fill the muffin liners about 3/4 the way full.   Depending on how full you fill the cups, you might end up with a little extra batter.

After all the liners are all filled it’s cinnamon sugar time.  Sprinkle about a half teaspoon of cinnamon sugar onto each muffin.  This gives the muffins an added sweetness and creates a sort of crust on the top.  Yum!!!

Into the oven they go.  Bake them in a 350 degree oven for about 22-24 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when poked in the center.  Here they are all done.  Don’t they look so delicious?!

Whether you like your muffins plain or with a little pad of butter it’s a win-win.

They are moist.  The apple pieces add a tart sweetness while the little cinnamon chips offer a warm and inviting flavor.  When you take a bite, the chips are like little bursts of sweet cinnamon bombs.
