Maple Apple Muffins

See, the thing about muffins is that they aren’t pretty. They just aren’t.  Yummy yes, but not pretty.  And they don’t photograph well.  They just sit there looking all sad and muffin like.  A boring old muffin.

BUT, if you could taste these Maple Apple Muffins, you would know.  You would know that this muffin is the bomb!  In fact it’s probably one of the best muffins I’ve had.  But I like oatmeal-y things with cinnamon.  And apples.

I love that the apples are cut up really small so you almost don’t even know they are there.  Which is perfect for kids (and Moms) who take apart their food to make sure there are no “chunky things” hidden in there.  These are little people approved.  All three of mine gobbled them up.  A great success I say!  😉

    I just tried this and Mine came out very dry. Stupid question, should it have been oatmeal—as in already cooked oats instead of a cup of oats?
