Apple Maple Oatmeal Muffins with Spiced Butter

I found this gem on Bunny's Warm Oven, I tweaked it a bit to suit my needs, as always but I did want to give her the credit she deserves.
These remind me of a cold winter morning when mom used to make oatmeal, with pure maple syrup. Always pure maple syrup, if you haven't tried it, please do, i know it seems pricey, but a little goes a long way. Always look for a container that says PURE maple syrup.

  1. 1 cup Old Fashioned Oats
  2. 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced
  3. 1/2 cup milk
  4. 1 cup flour
  5. 2 Teaspoons baking powder
  6. 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  7. 1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon
  8. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  9. 3/4 cup real maple syrup
  10. 1/4 cup melted butter, cooled
  11. 1 egg, slightly beaten
  12. 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, divided
  1. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan or use paper liners. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. 1. In a medium mixing bowl combine the oats and milk, let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. 2. In a large bowl combine flour,baking powder,salt and cinnamon, mix with a fork to combine. Make a large well in the center of the flour mixture, set aside.
  4. 3. To the oat and milk mixture add the maple syrup,vanilla, melted butter and slightly beaten egg. Stir to incorporate. Add the oatmeal mixture all at once to the flour mixture, stir until just moistened. Batter will be lumpy. Fold in apple and 1/4 cup chopped walnuts.
  5. 4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin, filling 2/3 full. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup chopped walnuts. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 - 18 minutes, or till golden brown. Cool in muffin tins for 10 minutes. Remove from tins and serve warm.
  6. Spiced Butter
  7. 1/2 cup butter, softened
  8. 2 T. pure maple syrup
  9. 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  10. 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
