Sweet Cinnamon Puffs

These are a sweet tasty treat to enjoy with breakfast, a snack, or dessert. Each puff is about 90 calories.


1/2 c granulated sugar
1/3 c melted unsalted butter
1 large egg
1-1/2 c all-purpose flour
1-1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t salt
1/2 c skim milk

1/4 c unsalted butter, melted
Mix together:
1/4 c granulated sugar
1 t cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350. Place butter, sugar, and egg in a large bowl and mix. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Add dry ingredients and milk alternately, ending with milk.

Spray a mini-muffin pan with cooking spray. Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full (I use a small cookie scoop to make this easier) and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven.

Roll the hot muffins in melted butter, then in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
