These Maple Snickerdoodle Muffins are soft, cakey, and deliciously easy to make! The famous cinnamony-sugary snickerdoodle combination bursting with maple flavor in each bite. Be sure to watch the recipe video too!
Since I love snickerdoodle cookies so dang much I was inspired to make Maple Snickerdoodle Muffins!
These muffins are just like they classic cookie but in muffins form: chewy and of course loaded with cinnamon!
As I am writing this post, I am sitting in New York City overlooking this gorgeous concrete jungle. I can see the One World Center right from our apartment…which we are actually going to go visit here in a few hours! (A friend is letting us stay in here apartment because she is out of town…we got lucky!).
I brought Cam to Long Island to meet my New York family and we hung out with them for a few days. Now, we are exploring the city for the next 6 days! It is Cameron’s very first time here so we are certainly enjoying it together.
We plan to see all the things, and EAT all the things while we are here. I am thinking of doing a “round up” of all of the places we ate, and all of the places recommended to us after our trip. This city has so much to offer I wish we could do it all!
All of these ingredients are probably ingredients you have on hand already. That’s the joy of baking, if you keep your baking cabinet stocked with the staples you can throw many of my recipes together!
I have never actually make these muffins as a cake. My advice for trying this out would be to increase the baking time to 30 minutes and you may need to thin the batter out a little more for the cake so it’s not too dense.
Can these Maple Snickerdoodle Muffins be frozen?
YES! I love freezing muffins. In fact, I freeze almost every muffin recipe I make because I love having them on hand!
Substitutions & Modifications for this recipe:
If you don’t have yogurt, you can use sour cream.
Cream of tartar can be used if you want (1/8 tsp) but not required.
I love adding in cinnamon chips in this recipe too (1/2 cup) but once again, not required.
To make these gluten free muffins, I would consider using alternatives such as brown rice flour, millet flour, tapioca starch/flour and also xanthan gum.

Maple Snickerdoodle Muffins
These Maple Snickerdoodle Muffins bake up beautifully and are bursting with all of the cinnamony-sugary flavors of the classic snickerdoodle cookie. The addition of maple adds a fun twist to these delightful muffins!
Preheat the oven to 375° F and spray a large 6-cup muffin tin with non-stick baking spray.
Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream the softened butter and granulated sugar together until smooth and well combined. Then add in the maple syrup, eggs, milk, yogurt and vanilla and mix again.
Remove the bowl from the stand mixer and using a rubber spatula, fold in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Mixture may seem thin, that's okay. Fold until incorporated.
Spoon the batter into the muffin tins and bake for 18-20 minutes or until you insert a toothpick and it comes out clean. While the muffins bake, combine the cinnamon and sugar together in a small dish. Melt the butter separately in the microwave in a microwave safe dish for 10-15 seconds or until melted.
When the muffins are done, remove from oven and brush the butter on the muffin tops. Lastly, sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon & sugar on top.
