Maple Apple Muffins

Any time is the perfect time for baking!

It’s true, but there’s just something about fall that makes me want to bake all the things…cakes, muffins, cookies…you name it, I want to bake it. I think it has a lot to do with all of the fresh fruit and veggies that are abundant this time of year…the markets are full so I stock up! So in efforts not to waste food I bake and cook and I’m not mad about it.  This week I had a bowl full of market McIntosh apples that just called to me so I made these Maple Apple muffins.

Recipe Tips:

  • Apples: My favourite apples for this recipe are McIntosh apples, but feel free to use your favourite.
  • Oats: Use quick oats for this recipe.
  • Sugar Topping: I like to sprinkle on some extra sugar on the tops of the batter before I put the muffins in the oven. It makes a nice sweet sugary crust.
  • Freezing: These muffins freeze really well. Just store them in an air-tight container or ziplock bag.
