Cinnamon Muffins

Cinnamon Muffins
By Erin of Dinners, Dishes and Desserts

3/4 cup of sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup fat-free milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 Tbls sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the egg and sugar together until it is creamy.   Stir together the flour, baking powder, 1 tsp. cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.  Pour dry ingredients into the egg mixture and stir to combine.  Add vegetable oil, milk and vanilla, stirring until just combined.

Divide the batter into a prepared muffin tin.  You will want to spray with non-stick spray instead of using liners for this recipe.  Bake for about 15 minutes.

Mix the last 3 Tbls of sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon together in a bowl.  After the muffins come out and have cooled enough so you can handle them, roll them around in the sugar to coat all sides.
