Hello blog world! Kellyn here with another Tried and True recipe, you are sure to love! After all, we do not share recipes, we ourselves, do not love. And what is not to love about these Mini Frosted Cinnamon Donut Muffins? The pictures say it all! These tiny donut muffins are covered in cinnamon and sugar and are topped with an amazing cream cheese frosting!!

These bite-sized goodies were such a hit that we had wished we had doubled the recipe. They’re tiny, but don’t let that fool you. You’ll wish you had a baker’s dozen for yourself! Personally, I loved that this was a quick recipe to throw together. We ended up adding frosting (because what isn’t better with frosting?!), and it was a huge hit. If you want them a little lighter, go without the frosting. Either way, they tasted great! We hope you enjoy these tiny muffins as much as we did.
