Cinnamon Swirl Muffins

Cinnamony swirl goodness. 

I was looking in my bake magazine and found a recipe for muffins! 

I didn't have pecans so I used walnuts. I didn't have buttermilk so I combined one teaspoon of lemon juice with almond milk. 

Check out the ingredients below!


Preheat oven to 425. 

Combine the baking powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl combine the sugar and butter. Once that's light and fluffy add the eggs and vanilla. Alternate mixing in the dry mixture and the buttermilk. 

Making the topping mixture with sugar, cinnamon and pecans (or walnuts). 

Fill the baking cups half way then spoon in some of the toppings mixture. Fill in the rest of the batter then take a toothpick shaped tool and swirl the ingredients. Top off everything with the cinnamon sugar mixture. 

Bake for 5 minutes then lower heat to 350 and bake for about 20 - 30 minutes. 

Let cool on a wire rack.
