  • 2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • ¼ cups Powdered Sugar


Heat oven to 400F. Grease or line a muffin pan.

In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon. In a smaller bowl, combine milk, apple cider, butter, 1/4 cup maple syrup, and egg. Stir into dry ingredients until combined, and gently stir in diced apples.

Fill muffin cups to 3/4 full with muffin batter. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the muffins comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

For the glaze, combine 2 tablespoons maple syrup and 1/4 cup powdered sugar until well-mixed, and drizzle over warm (but not hot) muffins.
