Preparation

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.

Topping

: Brush warm muffin tops with maple syrup. Let cool completely.

Tips

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!
