Cinnamon Muffins

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 cup nonfat buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, 2 teaspoons of the cinnamon and salt.
