Cinnamon Cream Cheese Muffins

These Cinnamon Cream Cheese Muffins are so moist and delicious with the perfect flavor combination of cinnamon and cream cheese.

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Muffins are perfect for brunch, breakfast, special occasions or a great afternoon snack. All you need is a tall glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee to go with them.

These moist and delicious muffins combine two of my favorite flavors, cinnamon and cream cheese. These are great to have on hand for a quick breakfast or after school snack.


Not only does my husband deserve a big fat gold star for working sun up to sun down, but I think I deserve something big and shiny for all the stuff I have to deal with while I’m painting the house. Like keeping the inside of the house livable. Or actually making dinner. Or still finding time to exercise. Or planning a little birthday party for my now 1-year old. Or picking up immunization records for my almost Kindergartner. Or doing the ‘work’ side of the blog. {Gross paperwork and taxes}

Yeah. Someone give me a medal…cough cough Gordon.

Usually he would read this post and see that last phrase, but odds are he’s still outside painting the house.

Sooooo yeah. Mother’s Day is coming up…maybe I’ll aim for that. MAYBE THE HOUSE WILL BE PAINTED BY THEN.
