I love baking small treats for my kids' lunchboxes, like these Whole Wheat Cinnamon Mini Muffins. Instead of filling them up with high fructose corn syrup, I can control the ingredients in my homemade muffins and add a little nutrition to their sweet.
This recipe is pure sweetness, since there's not even a fruit puree involved. These were requested by my one daughter who said, “Mommy, make some muffins without stuff hiding inside, please.” Don't tell her about the whole wheat flour…
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 2 eggs
- Cinnamon Sugar (1/4 sugar mixed with 2 tsp cinnamon)

These Whole Wheat Cinnamon Mini Muffins make the whole house smell good, and they'd make a lovely fall gift for a friend or neighbor.
