Cinnamon Muffins

Diabetic + Heart Healthy

At about one-third the calories of fast food muffins, these cinnamon muffins are a great way to start the day. These whole wheat muffins are topped with a touch of sugar for a sweet lift.


  1. 1 cup nonfat buttermilk
  2. 1/2 cup brown sugar
  3. 3 Tbsp olive oil
  4. 2 large eggs
  5. 2 cups whole wheat flour
  6. 2 tsp baking powder
  7. 1 tsp baking soda
  8. 3 tsp cinnamon
  9. 1/4 tsp salt
  10. 3/4 cup raisins
  11. 2 Tbsp raw sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, brown sugar, oil and eggs.
  3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, 2 teaspoons of the cinnamon and salt.
  4. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the wet ingredients, stirring to just combine. Add the raisins and stir gently to combine. Divide batter among muffin cups.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the raw sugar and the remaining 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top of muffins.
  6. Bake the muffins for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the edges are golden. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
