Snickerdoodle Muffins with Cinnamon Chips

Cinnamon is such a versatile spice.  It is sweet, fragrant, warm, and aromatic and can be used in both sweet and savory recipes.  Studies have also shown that cinnamon has medicinal benefits such as lowering LDL cholesterol, lessening inflammation, and just smelling the wonderful odor of this sweet spice boosts brain activity.  It is a great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium.

I was cleaning out my freezer and found some cinnamon chips from King Arthur Flour that I received in a regional swap exchange with a friend from the Cooking Light Forum.  I love the products from King Arthur Flour.  They offer so many different items and the quality is excellent.  I decided that they would make a great addition to the Snickerdoodle Muffins.



The recipe I used was one I found on a blog called Taste and Tell. This is a super quick and easy recipe that tastes delicious.  These only take approximately 15 minutes to cook and I dare you to try not to eat one as soon as it is out of the oven.  The addition of the cinnamon chips really adds an extra cinnamon boost to the muffins.  I think they would also be good with coffee chips.
