Cinnamon Jam Muffins

One of my Sunday routines is to make a breakfast item that Jesse and I can enjoy throughout the week. Something quick to just grab and go, but it also has to be something super tasty at the same time. I always make granola bars, but I like to make something else so we are not eating granola bars every morning. This week I made these oh so divine Cinnamon Jam Muffins. They are these sweet muffins, filled with jam and swirled in cinnamon! Ugh yeah….they are so good!! Jesse has already ate 4 of them and I barley just made them two days ago haha! He usually approves of my sweet treats, but he really has enjoyed these delicious muffins.

I am always on the lookout for breakfast items that are quick and delicious that I can make ahead of time. If you have any suggestions I sure would love to hear about them! I am asking for a bread machine for Christmas this year in hopes of making some yummy breakfast breads with it. I urge you to try out these Cinnamon Jam Muffins; let me know what you think!

Ingredients: (makes 12 muffins)

  • 1 ¾ C Flour
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¾ C Sugar
  • 1/3 C applesauce (I used cinnamon applesauce, but plain will do)
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ C Milk
  • Jam, any you prefer

Cinnamon topping:

  • 1/3 C Sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ C melted butter


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a cupcake pan, or use cupcake liners.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon until everything is well incorporated.
  3. In a different mixing bowl, combine your sugar and applesauce until well blended and then incorporate your egg.
  4. When your wet ingredients are mixed together well, add about half of your dry ingredients to it and mix just until blended. Then add in about ½ of your milk and mix  until blended as well. Repeat with the dry and then repeat with the milk until everything is mixed together.
  5. In your cupcake pan, fill your cupcake tins with batter until about ½ full. Place a dollop of jam in each cupcake tin and then fill the rest of the tin with batter until it is about ¾ full.

  7. Place in the oven for about 18-25 mins.
  8. Once the muffins come out of the oven, prepare your melted butter in one bowl and mix your sugar and cinnamon in another bowl.
  9. While the muffins are still warm, pop them out of the muffin tin and one at a time dip the top of the muffin into your melted butter first and then swirl it around in your cinnamon sugar mixture.


Place on a cooling rack, and let cool completely. Place in the fridge for storage.
