We like them not only because they are quick and easy to prepare, but also because you only need a few simple ingredients to enjoy their amazing taste. These Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Muffins are a perfect choice for breakfast, snack or when you simply crave for something sweet. Yes, I really enjoy preparing them throughout the whole year, every time I wish to feel a pumpkin taste, and especially during pumpkin season. 

Like their color, the fact that they are so soft and moist, but above all I love the cinnamon and brown sugar coat. You can bake them in a muffin tin, without paper liners and cover them completely with cinnamon – brown sugar mixture.  They can also be baked in paper liners. In that case only the top of the muffins will be covered with cinnamon – brown sugar mixture.

How to prepare Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Muffins? 

Start by combining all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg.  In a separate dish, beat eggs, vegetable oil, light brown sugar and granulated sugar for about 2 minutes, and then mix in vanilla extract. Next, add milk and pumpkin puree and mix until it is well combined. Continue beating while slowly adding dry ingredients.  When it´s ready, divide batter among muffin cups, previously sprayed with non stick spray.

Bake the muffins at 350 F, for about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean or with a few crumbs on it. Then, take the muffins out of the oven and let them cool in the muffin tin for a while, then take them out of the muffin tin and place on the cooling rack.  Meanwhile, melt the butter and combine light brown sugar with cinnamon in a smaller dish. Dip the muffins into the slightly cooled, melted butter, draining the extra and then cover them with cinnamon-brown sugar mixture. Make sure to cover them completely.
