Our after dinner snack.

Over the past 8 months I have lost 33 pounds (my husband over 40 pounds) counting calories, walking, and light exercise. We both have been working real hard to shed those extra unwanted pounds. Every once in a while we need a little treat so I made these yummy muffins for an after dinner snack. I added my own modifications to the recipe and they turned out great!!


Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

Yield: 12 muffins
Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup egg beaters
3/4 cup skim milk
1 tsp vanilla 

Topping:

4 tbs melted butter 
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tbs cinnamon 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Line 12 muffin cups with muffin liners or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, nutmeg and cinnamon.
in a small bowl whisk together butter, sugar, egg beaters, milk and vanilla.
Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Divide batter equally among muffin cups. Bake 25 minutes or until muffin tops are a pale golden and springy to the touch.(rotating halfway through baking time.)
While muffins are baking mix cinnamon and sugar in a medium size bowl. Place melted butter in a small bowl. Once the muffins are baked and still hot dip muffin tops in the melted butter  and roll in cinnamon/sugar mixture.

This is just a cell pic but you get the idea. Maybe next time I make them I will drag out the big camera and get some real foodtogrophy ;)
Recipe is shown here the exact way I made it with my modifications.
