Cinnamon French Toast Muffins

I have a short and sweet post for you today friends. I’m a bit frazzled with getting packed and ready to head to snowy Wisconsin for the week, (assuming my flight makes it out,) but I couldn’t resist sharing this delicious breakfast idea with you beforehand!  I made them for brunch recently and they would be another great idea for Christmas morning, or any day before or after you want something easy and comforting.

The cinnamon-y muffin is topped with chunks of real french toast which are brushed with maple syrup after baking and topped with cinnamon and sugar. They really taste like french toast and are easy to throw together in advance and just warm slightly before serving.
