Maple Oatmeal Muffins
Tender , moist and delicious Maple Oatmeal Muffins are sweetened with real Maple Syrup. No sugar added, just real Maple Syrup. Grab yourself a cup of coffee or a big glass of milk while you savor the flavors. The oatmeal provides a nice chew while the walnuts add just the right amount of crunch. The muffins are sweet but not overly sweet, letting you enjoy the touch of cinnamon in the background.
I decided to make Spiced Maple Butter to spread on the muffins. A simple easy flavored butter with only three ingredients. Butter, Maple Syrup and cinnamon. This delicious concoction would be wonderful on toast, pancakes or waffles. Adding the spiced butter to the muffins is like adding a scoop of ice cream to pie, it doesn’t need it to make it delicious , it just takes it up and over the top to AMAZING! Enjoy!
