I love that warm cinnamon sugar taste right out of the oven, especially on a cold winters morning..Pancake muffins are a great alternative to regular muffins and can be mixed up and baked fairly quick. They make for a fun little breakfast the whole family can enjoy and these delicious brown sugar cinnamon ones are only 3 smart points each.

  1. Hi. I made these but found them to be almost too moist despite backing them for 18 minutes. They were dense instead of fluffy. I made no subs. Any advice on how they can be more cake like?

    1. Hi, many of my muffins and loaf recipes will be denser than say a store-bought muffin, that said these particular muffins are an older recipes with not a lot of wet ingredients in them so I am surprised you found them so dense, maybe use a little less milk next time..
