Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins


These muffins were a result of one of the best nights in a long time. A night so fun that it turned into morning, where these muffins were born. I have to give a huge shout out to one of my closest friends, Carter, who whipped a batch of these babies up at 5:30 in the morning with ingredients just hanging out in my pantry and fridge. These muffins are so easy and delicious, I just had to share them with you!
