The combination of apples and maple are the perfect addition to these moist oatmeal muffins. They're great for breakfast on the run.
Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C). Lightly butter nonstick muffin pans or line with paper liners.
In bowl, combine oats and milk; let stand for 5 min. In separate large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk sugar, maple syrup, egg, butter and vanilla extract into milk mixture. Pour over dry ingredients and sprinkle with apples. Stir just until moistened.
Spoon into prepared muffin pan. Bake for about 25 min or until tops are firm to the touch. Let cool in pan for 10 min. Transfer to rack.
Brush warm muffin tops with maple syrup. Let cool completely.
Maple syrup is important for this recipe. Imitation maple-flavoured pancake syrup won't give the right flavour or texture.For best flavour and texture, choose tart apples that hold their shape when cooked such as Granny Smith, Northern Spy Cortland or Crispin (Mutsu).
Healthy Eating Tip: The perfect after school snack when paired with a cold glass of milk or Chocolate milk!

I made these and they're tasty but after 25 mins I found the centre still a tad soft. So I'm putting them back in for another 3 mins or so to cook through completely. Otherwise delicious! Even topped them with a bit of cinnamon sugar.

Great idea to mix the apple and maple flavors together but I discovered that you really need to add more sugar or more maple syrup because otherwise the muffins really aren't sweet enough. I would also add more apples since the muffins were actually rather tasteless.

I love these muffins. I added 1 cup of chopped pecans for some crunch.

I replaced some of the white flour with 1/4 cup ground flaxseed and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and replaced the sugar with honey.

These muffins are GREAT. Not too sweet and not plain either. The perfect combo. They make a great breakfast muffin or a quick snack. My kids loved them and with the apples and oatmeal in them, so I'm happy knowing they are still getting some good stuff in there too.
