Today was Father’s Day, but since I am still under the weather, we weren’t able to go out to celebrate. However, I was able to get into the kitchen to whip my dad up a batch of these Cinnamon Sugar Donut Mini Muffins! These are super easy to make and give you all of the flavor of a sugar donut without the unhealthiness of being fried.
