Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Mini Muffins


Ingredients:
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 cup milk

Topping:
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tbs cinnamon
*Note: this made for quite a bit of extra topping, so either dip the entire muffin (I only dipped the top half), or make a little less.

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spray your mini muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray
2. Combine dry ingredients in medium bowl, whisking until combined
3. In a large bowl, mix together remaining ingredients (oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, pumpkin, vanilla & milk)
4. Pour dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined (do not over stir)
5. Fill mini muffin tins until almost full
6. Bake 10-12 minutes
7. While muffins are baking, melt butter and set aside.
8. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon for topping
9. After the muffins have cooled some, dip them in the melted butter and coat with cinnamon and sugar
