Snickerdoodle Apple Cinnamon Muffins

These Snickerdoodle Apple Cinnamon Muffins are always a huge hit. Everyone from kids to adults loves them. The sweet cinnamon taste with a hint of apple is pure perfection. We love them so much we will often eat them fresh out of the oven after they have cooled just enough to touch.

Inspired by the way you roll snickerdoodle cookie dough in cinnamon sugar, we dip the tops of these apple cinnamon muffins in additional butter and cinnamon sugar, and the result is pure bliss in a tiny, bite-sized muffin.

Growing up these apple cinnamon muffins were my absolute favorite. I do not remember having them for breakfast in the morning as much as I remember having them when my Mom would make breakfast foods for dinner. What is it about breakfast for dinner?? I just love it! Especially when it involves these Snickerdoodle Apple Muffins.
