Maple Muffins

Preheat oven to 350 F, and grease 24 muffin cups.

Blend together:

1/2 cup melted butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. sea salt

Add dry ingredients, and blend until crumbly:

1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
4 tsp. baking powder

Add and stir together:

1 1/2 cups rolled oats (not quick cooking)

Mix together well and stir into dry ingredients, just until moistened:

1 cup milk
1 cup pure maple syrup

Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from muffin tins. Cool and spread with glaze.


1 Tbsp. softened butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
1 Tbsp. milk

Mix together until smooth. Drizzle over muffin tops.

This recipe was originally found on Heather's blog, A Place of Quiet Rest. I'm not a "maple and brown sugar" kind of gal, but I knew my family would enjoy them anyway. Of course, I had to taste one, and I was very pleasantly surprised. I expected a sugary-sweet flavor like the Maple and Brown Sugar instant oatmeal packets. Instead I was greeted by a bite of very mild, only slightly sweet, hearty goodness. My family said these are a definite "make again!" Thank you, Heather, for giving me permission to share the recipe on my blog.
