My family and I LOVE these muffins! I don't roll the whole thing in the cinnamon sugar, only top it. I had a co-worker that use to make these for work, but she did not add the nutmeg. Honestly, hers just weren't as good. Thank you for this great recipe!

We liked these but with muffins are very sweet and with the addition of rolling in the cinnamon sugar, almost too sweet. I made 12 muffins and they are very small, so I probably should have made only 9. Thank you for posting CoconutCream. Please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.

These were so easy to make (10 minutes!) and so tasty. We didnt put cinnamon sugar on top, we cut the muffins in half and spread nutella on them. Extremely tasty when just out of the oven as the nutella melts - perfect!
