I have never been a muffin girl, unti lately. I do recall years ago my mom or teaches getting a large pack of muffins from Costco and one was apple with a maple glaze. I remember always begging for that muffin. It was delish.
Well it’s been a few years. And the other day the muffin just popped in my head. Baked goods seem to do that to me. Anyways I left work that day and stopped at Target to pick up some ingredients. Well un benounced to me the Target by my work has a 1/8 of a baking aisle and carries not fresh fruit. So no apples for the muffins I wanted. 🙁 I was annoyed. But later that night I happened to go to Trader Joes and got my apples 🙂 so muffins would be made the next day ! WOO HOO
And let me say these Apple Muffins with Maple Glaze deserve a WOO HOO! I seriously loved them! In fact I loved them so much I hoarded them in a bag inside my purse so no one else could get to them. Sad? Pathetic? I know, I have issues.
On a serious note, the spices, the chunks of apples, the oats in the batter, the moistness, the maple glaze- what is not to love? These Apple Muffins w/ Maple Glaze will defo be making many more appearances in my kitchen.
