Ok. These are actually mini muffins. And I used to make them full size, and you can too.

BUT. My family likes them as minis and before too long everyone started calling them donut holes.

They pretty easy to make…just mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl and all the wet in another and then mix them all together.

Spray your mini muffin pin with cooking spray and fill tins with a teaspoon to about 2/3 full.

Bake them up and then cool.

Roll them in butter and cinnamon & sugar or glaze them. Either way they are DELICIOUS.
