Snickerdoodle Muffins

Snickerdoodle Muffins

Snicker-doodle Muffins are lightly spiced, tender, cinnamon muffins with sweet spiced cinnamon sugar streussel on top.  These are easy to throw together and my kids absolutely attacked them.  They are delicious warmed up, slathered with butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.  You can also spread them with peach or pear jam for a delicious treat!

A few step by step photos, full recipe at the end of the post

Mix up dry ingredients and whisk well.  See pic: there is always bacon around… we had bacon with these muffins for breakfast.

Add wet ingredients (after you’ve combined them).

Fold batter gently until incorporated, do not over mix.


Spray with non-stick spray (I have endless amounts of PAM spray in my home). Scoop batter into muffin tins.  I used 1/4 C cookie scoop (generous scoop) and it was the perfect amount.


Combine ingredients for streussel.  Cut together with a fork.


Evenly distribute streussel on top of muffins. Lightly press into batter.  Lightly!


Bake for 18-20 minutes in a preheated 375 degree oven. Remove, let cool a bit and turn out of muffin tin to cool on a wire rack until warm.



Do you know the muffin man? (I’m pretty sure he had 3 of these mega muffins down within 2 hours.)

For the Snickerdoodle Streusel

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 5 TBSP cold butter cut into 1/4” pieces

For the Cinnamon spiced Muffins

  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 C light brown sugar
  • 1 TBSP baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon  I use King Arthur Flour Vietnamese Cinnamon, use any type you'd like.
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C (1 sticbutter melted and cooled a bit
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Center a rack in the oven and preheat oven to 375 degrees Butter or spray the 12 molds in a regular-size muffin pan or line with paper cups. Place the muffin pan on a baking sheet.
  • To make the streusel, put the flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Add the bits of cold butter and toss, pinching the mixture between your fingers, until you have pea-sized crumbs. Set aside in the refrigerator.
  • To make muffins: mix together flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.  Whisk well.  In a separate bowl combine melted/cooled butter, eggs, milk and vanilla, beat well.  Slowly add wet ingredients to dry ingredients.  Whisk gently or fold only until combined.  Don’t overmix.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Sprinkle streusel over each muffin, gently pressing to secure streusel to batter.
  • Bake for about 18-20 minutes, or until the tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and cool for 5 minutes before carefully removing each muffin. Serve warm or at room temperature.  Muffins can be stored, in an airtight container, at room temperature for a couple of days.  Serve warm with butter and cinnamon sugar or peach jam.
