No, it isn’t a typo. There really are 2 1/2 tsp of cinnamon in a recipe for 6 muffins. I adapted this recipe for my friend, Steph, whose answer to all the world’s problems is, “it needs more cinnamon”. My goal was to add enough cinnamon to make her say. “Whoa, that’s enough cinnamon.” Sadly, I didn’t accomplish that goal with this recipe. I did accomplish making a yummy muffin that both Steph and I enjoyed so I am happy with that.
