Cinnamon Crumb Muffins

Delicious Cinnamon Crumb Muffins that are so quick and easy to make, you’ll be eating them in less than half an hour!

These tasty light Cinnamon Crumb Muffins are lovely for afternoon tea, the kid’s lunch boxes, or you can bake and freeze for when unexpected guests visit.
I was inspired to create this recipe because of my kids love of the Betty Crocker Cinnamon Crumb packet muffins. It is usually my emergency packet mix that sits in the back of the pantry, but I really do prefer to make muffins from scratch. So in an attempt to come up with my own cinnamon crumb recipe I stumbled upon this concoction, and the kids LOVE IT! Best of all it’s made from all pantry ingredients, so is super quick to make!

I have been seeing all of your yummy school recipes on Facebook and Pinterest this whole week – and I’m pinning them like crazy!! I love anything with cinnamon in it so these sound amazing (the banana and weet-bix muffins are also going on my must make list!). xx

We love the Betty Crocker packet mix too, so I am excited to try this recipe. We add a handful of frozen raspberries to the mix, adds a little zing & is so delicious!

yes they do Mrs P, I put them in a freezer friendly container, I don’t wrap them in glad wrap.

Would adding some apples (i.e. like pie apples) be an option for this recipe, and if so, would I need to take anything else out?

Can you substitute sugar for something else?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife March 24, 2021 - 1:18 PM

I haven’t myself, but I’m sure you could trial swapping it out for your preferred alternative. Kat x

Hey, love the sound of the recipe! I’m going to cook it but i was just wondering can you add frozen raspberries in? If so do you need any other ingredients to be raised due to the liquid quantity coming from the raspberries?
