Maple Apple Muffins

Maple syrup adds a whole new layer of flavor to these muffins, and the hint of caramel is a perfect match with the apples and walnuts. These muffins are really moist and full of flavor from the spices, apples, maple syrup, crunchy walnuts, and the rich, earthy taste of oats.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
