25 MIN

  1. In a bowl, combine the rolled oats, brown sugar, flour and melted butter. Set aside.
  2. In a skillet, sauté the apples in the butter for about 5 minutes.
  3. Allow to cool.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Line a 12-cavity muffin tray with paper liners.
  2. In another bowl, combine the pastry flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
  4. With a wooden spoon, stir the dry ingredients into the butter and sugar mixture alternately with the milk. Add the diced apples. Spoon the batter into the cavities.
  5. Place 3 pieces of cooked apples on each muffin and cover with oatmeal topping. Press lightly with your fingers.
  6. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of one muffin comes out clean.


  1. This recipe resulted in wet "not quite muffins". The muffins fall apart when unwrapped. The flavour was great but they were just too wet.

  2. My whole family love these muffins, and they're even better with a caramel syrup on top.

  3. Fabulous! They taste amazing and pretty easy to prepare. I only ending up needing 2 apples, not 3.

  4. These are amazing worth the process it takes

  5. I was well into making these muffins when I realized there was no sugar amount listed to cream with the butter. Assumed the second 1/2 cup butter was supposed to be 1/2 cup sugar. It seemed the right proportion to the amount of flour. Fortunately, it was a correct assumption and they were delicious.

  6. Is their supposed to be a duplicate of 1/2 cup butter in muffin recipe?
