Cinnamon Roll Muffins:

These were super yummy and not all that difficult. They definitely helped to curb the cinnamon roll craving and I know we will absolutely be making them again!!
I hope you give them a try!! Let me know what you think!

1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1 & 3/4 cup flour
1 & 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
1/2 cup quick oats
3/4 cup sugar
1 tblsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 cup chocolate, butterscotch or cinnamon chips, optional

3 tblsp. butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 & 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 cup powder sugar
1 tblsp. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together butter, milk and eggs. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, including the chips. Add to the butter mixture and mix just until combined. Divide batter in half. Divide half of the batter between 12 muffin cups; spread the batter evenly across the bottom of the cup. Mix together filling ingredients and divide evenly between the 12 muffin cups.
 Divide the remaining batter over the filling and spread out evenly. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before removing from the pan. Remove to a wire rack with a cookie sheet or wax paper underneath. Mix together icing ingredients and drizzle over the muffins. Let stand 3-5 minutes. Serve!!!

-We made it with the chocolate chips, but I think you could leave those out if you wanted and they would still be great!
-We tried a few with paper muffin cups and they did work, but it was definitely easier without them. They just got kind of messy and sticky with the filling and icing.
