YOU GUYS! These sweet and spicy (not in a hot way) little doughnut muffins are so, so, so good! The hint of nutmeg balances so well with the cinnamon sugar topping and then there is the burst of chocolate chips..Oh, these little doughnut muffins are so tasty!

  I made these a couple of days ago and in fact, I wasn’t planning on doing any baking at all. However, the kitchen was calling my name and as was my mini muffin pan. Am I the only one who feels the need to pay equal amounts of attention to my baking pans and dishes? No, okay I guess I’m the odd one. 🙂 I felt like I was neglecting my mini muffin pan and just wanted to use it since it had been a while.

 I believe this is the first recipe I have shared on my blog that requires a mini muffin pan. I can’t remember exactly as I am filling up my recipe index each week. However, I do suggest that you use a mini muffin pan for these cuties rather than a regular size pan.

This recipe is fun, versatile and delicious. I’ll be making these again in a few months and adding in pumpkin. Speaking of pumpkin I noticed the other day on Pinterest that there were several pins popping up of pumpkins. I didn’t mind it though, because fall and winter are my favorite seasons.

 These chocolate chip doughnut muffins would make a great breakfast for the upcoming 4th of July  holiday.  They are quick to make and you can throw the leftovers in an airtight container and munch on them throughout  the day!
