At about one-third the calories of fast food muffins, these cinnamon muffins are a great way to start the day. These whole wheat muffins are topped with a touch of sugar for a sweet lift.


  • 1 cup nonfat buttermilk

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 3 Tbsp olive oil

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 3 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 3/4 cup raisins

  • 2 Tbsp raw sugar


  • Preheat oven to 375°. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, brown sugar, oil and eggs.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, 2 teaspoons of the cinnamon and salt.
  • Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the wet ingredients, stirring to just combine. Add the raisins and stir gently to combine. Divide batter among muffin cups.
  • In a small bowl, combine the raw sugar and the remaining 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top of muffins.
  • Bake the muffins for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the edges are golden. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
