  1. Preheat oven to 375F and heavily grease a muffin pan.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together flour, sugar, quick oats, baking powder, cloves, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl mix together eggs, sour cream, milk, oil, and vanilla. Slowly mix in dry ingredients, just until no flour streaks remain. Fold in apple chunks and 1/2 cup of dulce de leche.
