Happy new year everyone, hope your year started out great! I overindulged in much yummy foods & decadent desserts over the X’mas & New Year holidays, resulting in a 3-lb weight gain and an uncomfortable bloated feeling. So for my first bake of 2016, i decided to go with something simple & light: cinnamon sugar puffs.
- 1 cup flour
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 Tbsp yogurt
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray mini muffin pan with cooking spray.
- In medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon. Add milk and yogurt and mix until combined.
- Divide batter into 12 mini muffin cups. Bake 10-15 minutes until golden. Top with additional cinnamon sugar if desired.
These sugar puffs have a light cinnamon flavor but are not very sweet. With no egg or oil, their texture is soft & airy, almost like a cream puff. They satisfy my sweet tooth without adding to my bloated feeling. Hopefully this feeling will soon pass and i’ll be able to indulge in more decadent desserts! 😛
