Cinnamon Raisin Muffins combine the subtle flavor of cinnamon with the sweetness of raisins, to create a great lunchbox option 🙂
Sometime back, when my oven came back from a long stint at the repair shop, I was in a mood for some baking but was really busy. So, I wanted something quick yet yummy. And honestly, I was also looking at something which I could send in the school snack box of the child. So, I made up this recipe of cinnamon raisin muffins in my head and started working on it. This is why I love baking muffins. Once you have got your basics right, there is so much you can do and come up with a yummy new flavour. An addition of an ingredient and the results are totally different. Muffins are my pet bakes if there exists any such thing.
This time I made them as mini muffins as they are easy when you have to pack them in a lunchbox to be taken to school. Also, I had this lovely and bright colored muffin liners that had just arrived sometime back from videsh with a friend! And I love how these have retained the color in baking 🙂 God bless all those souls who remember my baking and me, every time they come back from a trip. Friends are the best, aren’t they?
These cinnamon raisin muffins were a hit. I know that for sure because the lunchbox pretty much came back empty! I believe muffins make a great lunchbox option, especially since you can add a lot of stuff into muffins. Whether it is sweet muffins like the carrots, walnuts and apples ones and or savory muffins like the zucchini, corn and smoked cheese ones, it always appeals kids that there are ‘muffins’ in the lunchbox. Add a fruit or some chopped carrots and cucumber to the lunchbox, and you have a complete healthy meal for them!
