#MuffinMonday ~ Maple Oatmeal Muffins

#MuffinMonday is a group of muffin loving bakers who get together once a month to bake muffins. You can see all our of lovely muffins by following our Pinterest board.

Updated links for all of our past events and more information about Muffin Monday, can be found on our home page.

These muffins are tender and soft and very reminiscent of a soft oatmeal cookie! They work wonderfully for breakfast. I think the nuts would have been a great addition to these tasty treats, but have a "no nuts allowed" person (cough cough my sister cough cough) in my home, so had to leave them out this time. You could do raisins or chocolate chips as well for another add-in option.

Maple Oatmeal Muffins adapted from Midwest Living

1 cup quick-cooking or regular rolled oats
1/2 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

  1. Grease twelve 2-1/2-inch muffin cups or line with paper bake cups; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the oats and milk and set aside for 5 minutes. 
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. 
  3. Stir the maple syrup, melted butter, and egg into oats mixture until just combined. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Combine just until batter is blended (a little lumpy is ok). 
  4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full (these muffins won't rise that much). Sprinkle with remaining nuts (if using). Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until tops are golden and a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. 
  5. Allow muffins to cool in their tin for about 10 minutes. Remove from muffin cups; serve warm (if desired). Makes 12 muffins.
** Store for up to 3 days in a well sealed container. 


  1. I love that these are sweetened just with the maple syrup, Rebekah! What wonderful flavor that must add to your fluffy muffins! My younger daughter would completely agree with your sister. Personally, I'm on Team Nut. :)

  2. Perfect for an on the go breakfast. Glad you joined us Rebekah. I have missed you.

    1. Aww thank you Wendy! I appreciate it! Trying to get back in the swing of things. :)

  3. Rebekah,
    I have no nut concerns and I love the idea of maple pecan muffins. I'd rather eat cookies any day, so a muffin that's like a cookie works for me!

  4. Love the maple syrup in these. They are sort of like pancakes in a muffin! Nuts or no nuts, these sound delish.

  5. I love nuts in my baked goods but I had friends who didn't so I'd leave them out so that I could share with them.
