Tuesday Treats: Cinnamon Muffins

Falls is coming! Fall is coming! Fall is my favorite season because I’m all about the cool and the flavors that just seem so tasty while enjoying the cooler temps. Also, I’m really big on muffins and breads and…well…okay, pies and cakes and anything yummy. All of that said, my favorite fall flavor is cinnamon, and these muffins are just the medicine!

Y’all know the drill. HEAD HERE for all the nutritional details from Food Talk Daily. I’m not the only one in the “family” who enjoys fall. Or cinnamon muffins! Sean “Boomer” Donaldson remembers sneaking some from the old woman who occasionally took him in when he was a kid. He’s even been known to share some with Cody, his adopted son, when his mate Annie whips up a batch. You can read their story (plus Jacey and Nate’s!) in MOONSTRUCK: LIES. Or you can so the single route and read about them in WOLF MOON. Just click on the title or the cover to head over. MOONSTRUCK: LIES is available lots of places. WOLF MOON is only available from Amazon, but you can also read it free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription. What about y’all? What’s your favorite fall flavor?

  1. Ooo, this one is definitely going in the recipe binder. Not sure about the cocoa in it, but I’ll give it a whirl. I wonder how ‘hot apple cider’ mix would work in it. Love me some apples and cinnamon. That’s probably my favorite fall flavor – apple cinnamon.

    I lurve Boomer big time. Rawr.

      Ooh! I bet the cider mix would taste awesome! Knowing you, you’ll play around with it. Let me know how they turn out! ❤ And I’m a little fond of Boomer, too. He seems to be a fan favorite. 😉
