4 Ingredient Cinnamon Almond Cupcakes

8:00 AM

Alright Y'all, Christmas is almost here and if you are like me you may feel a little "baked out".
I just don't have the desire to bake much as the holiday get's closer.

Yet, I find myself craving some festive cupcakes.
My snickerdoodle cupcake recipe was such a hit I thought I was Christmas-fy it with some lovely cinnamon and almond loveliness.

Sometimes you just don't have the time or effort to make cupcakes from scratch. I know how hard it is to have all the ingredients on hand sometimes, especially if you have food allergies and don't have random things like xanthum gum in your cabinet.
Hence why there is no shame in spicing up a box cake mix!
