A blog reader from my other blog recently dropped off some real maple syrup straight from my homeland of Canada and I knew I had to use it in something special. These maple oat muffins were the first breakfast we had with real maple syrup in my house and they were a HUGE hit.
These are just slightly chewy, which makes them different from other muffins and the maple adds a whole new flavor to the batter. It’s a very pleasant recipe and perfect for kids who like “cake” for breakfast.
Maple Oat Muffins
1 apple, finely grated
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. maple syrup
1 c. oats
1 c. boiling water
1/2 c. margarine
1.5 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
Beat eggs in a bowl and add the sugar and maple syrup. Mix thoroughly.
Mix in the flour and baking powder.
In a small bowl, combine hot water, oats and margarine, stir quickly to melt the margarine. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
Spoon into muffin tins and bake for about 15 minutes or until firm to the touch. I added a dab of Maple Cream on top, but these are great just on their own, too.Print or share this recipe using the icons above!
