Not long after I got married {nearly 10 years ago, holy smokes}, a work friend invited me to a Tastefully Simple party. One of the prepared muffins we got to sample were the Cinnamon Muffin Melts, which tasted like a sinful heaven to me.  I splurged on a box, which I made around the time of my first anniversary.

The Tall Boy went bonkers over them.  I mean, really, really bonkers.  And if you know my husband, that’s saying a lot when it comes to sweet breakfast breads.  But since those boxed mixes were pricey, we’ve only had them a time or two over the years.

Until now.

Recently, I was paging through some of my grandmother’s old recipes and books, and I stumbled on this one. Reading through the ingredients and method, I knew it was the homemade version of those cinnamon muffin melts I’d made all those years before.

Only way better.

The biggest problem with these muffins is that they are not diet friendly. Hello, you dip them in butter and then roll ‘em around in a cinnamon-sugar mixture.  Socrazygood.  And so worth it.

These French Breakfast Puffs are highly addictive. Paired with a steaming cup of coffee, I’m in pure breakfast bliss gobbling these up on a weekend morning.

Or a Wednesday morning, I’m not particular. ;-)

    Looks YUMMY! Do you know if I can substitute milk for soy milk and the egg with egg replacer? My kiddies have many food allergies
