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.

  1. Just pulled these out of the oven and inhaled two of them. So delicious! There’s just enough maple to make it noticeable without being overwhelming. I did do half all purpose flour and half white whole wheat, and they were still tender and most. Highly recommend.

  2. To make these sugar free I used truvia brown sugar in place of regular sugar. They were absolutely delicious and sugar free!

  3. These muffins are absolutely delicious! Followed the recipe to a tee, and they’ve come out great each time. Quick question: can you substitute the flour for oat flour or gluten-free flour? Would the ratios still be the same?

  4. I used gluten free flour and an egg substitute and they turned out great. Only 15 minutes in my convection oven.

  5. So yummy!
    I used quick cook steel cut oats and brown sugar – delicious!!
    Thank you for the recipe.

    1. Hi! You can, but I would recommend giving them a really quick pulse in a food processor just because the volume of each oat type is different…there are more quick oats in a cup vs. rolled oats, so the texture could be different.

  6. These were amazing! I added about 1/4 tsp of nutmeg because I like how it compliments the cinnamon and tastes like fall. I doubled the recipe as we are a family of 6 and between evening snack and lunches they were gone!
