Here’s a recipe for a most delicious variety of muffin: Snickerdoodle Muffins
Snickerdoodles for breakfast! Let’s do it! These Snickerdoodle Muffins are a muffin reminiscent of the flavor of snickerdoodle cookies, so in other words… they’re the best muffins ever! I seriously love snickerdoodles, so these muffins work for me. I think they’ll work for you too!
Comfort food baking is what everyone needs right now. And these muffins provide a lot of comfort. They’re a delicious breakfast treat. Bake some muffins to enjoy today!
This recipe comes from a new cookbook by Christy Denney: The Girl Who Ate Everything. This is a great cookbook for families! Author Denney is the mother of FIVE kids, so she’s pretty darn good at coming up with family-friendly recipes. Her blog- The Girl Who Ate Everything– has always been a favorite of mine for easy recipes.
Here are some more recipes in the book that I plan to try out on my own family: Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms, Bubble Bread, Jelly Roll Pancakes, Island Pork Tenderloin, Nacho Beef Casserole, Buffalo Chicken Pizza, Parmesan-Dijon Crusted Chicken Tenders, Pizza Mac, Pear and Quinoa Salad, Cookie-Crusted Chocolate Chip Cake, English Toffee Cookies and Cinnamon Roll Sheet Cake. This is a great cookbook to add to your cookbook collection. The recipes are all very easy to make.
When these little muffins come out of the oven, the tops are dipped in melted butter then rolled in cinnamon-sugar. This makes them extra irresistible- especially when they’re eaten while they’re still warm… the best!
Can you make these into regular-sized Snickerdoodle Muffins?
Yes! In this recipe, they’re made as mini-muffins, but you can most certainly make them into regular-sized muffins if you wish.
If you’re making these into mini-muffins, you can pick up a very inexpensive but good, nonstick mini muffin pan on Amazon. I have a favorite REGULAR-sized muffin pan that is also available on Amazon, and this is it! Make them as mini muffins or regular muffins- it’s totally up to you!
So what do you think? Surprise the family with some snickerdoodle muffins this weekend? You just might be highly praised and get some extra hugs if you do so! These muffins are when eaten the day they are made. Store leftovers in a covered container, and perhaps warm them slightly when you want to eat them later on. Enjoy!

You really need cream of tartar for Snickerdoodle recipes. Can you order it online?

Lori, thank you so much for the recipe, i made already and is easy, quick, ship and delicious, all my specialties…. 🙂 oh! and i used baking soda too, because i can’t have cream of tartar, but are perfect. How can i send you a pic for you approval?

I used baking soda since I didn’t have cream of tartar, turned out perfectly! I also made them in regular muffin size and they were wonderful. I’ll definitely make these again.
These ARE a hit and so easy. Thanks for the recipe.
I love mini-sized anything! 🙂 I haven’t tried these yet but I really want to, and have a question – is the cream of tartar really necessary? And if so, how can I substitute? I’ve googled this up and down and nothing’s adding up. I don’t think I have any around the house and I just wanted to bake these up real quick next morning for my family.
Thank you ~ ^_^
Cream of Tartar is key to making it “snickerdoodle” flavor.
