How To Make Cinnamon Chip Muffins
Step 1: Preheat and Prep. Start by preheating your oven to 375 °F and lining a muffin pan with paper liners.
Step 2: Mix Dry Ingredients. In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon.
Step 3: Blend Wet Ingredients. In a separate bowl, beat together the melted unsalted butter with the granulated sugar with a hand mixer, until well combined. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Step 4: Add Liquids. Mix in milk and vanilla extract until smooth.
Step 5: Combine Wet and Dry Mixes. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined.
Step 6: Fold in Cinnamon Chips. Gently fold in the cinnamon chips, distributing them evenly for that burst of cinnamon in every bite.
Step 7: Fill Muffin Cups. Divide the muffin batter evenly among the 12 cupcake liners in your prepared tin. You can use a large cookie scoop to help spoon batter into the liners.
Step 8: Bake to Perfection. Pop the tin in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. That golden brown perfection is your cue!
Step 9: Cool and Enjoy. Let the muffins cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Make Mini Muffins
Adjust the baking time to around 10-12 minutes for mini muffins. Keep an eye on them, and perform the toothpick test to be sure they're perfectly baked.
- Melted butter: Be sure your butter is melted and cooled before adding it to the mix. This helps achieve that perfect, moist texture in your muffins.
- Toothpick test: To check for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of a muffin. If it comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs (not wet batter), your muffins are ready to rock!
- Get creative: Feel free to customize! Add a sprinkle of sugar on top of the batter before baking, or even a handful of chopped nuts for extra crunch.
