Cinnamon Chip Graham Cracker Muffins are a new favorite here! I woke up early last Sunday morning (I never do that!) and I found that I was craving something on the sweet side for breakfast. I didn’t feel like the usual pancakes or french toast though.
Hmmm….what could I make, what could I make? Muffins! But not just any muffins. They had to have cinnamon chips in them. (If you are a regular reader you know I have
an obsession a love for cinnamon chips. I know you have all seen and hopefully made my Cinnamon Chip Scones. The scones are what began the love affair between myself and delicious chips!
After a little banging and clanging in the kitchen, these wonderful muffins were ready for the breakfast table. They were consumed pretty quickly! The topping is a flavorful combination of graham crackers, brown sugar and butter. Oh, I wish I could adequately describe these to you. But since I can’t you will have to get in your kitchen and make some for yourself.
