Maple Walnut Oat Muffins

Happy Friday everyone!

I am finally able to do some baking again! We’ve had an ice storm last weekend that left us with power outages, especially Sunday almost all day and on Monday the power went on and off all afternoon and then it just continued for the last few days. So annoying!

Now I am looking forward to some warmer and sunnier days!

We’ve been munching on these scrumptious muffins this week! My kids put one in their lunch bags for school every day! They are lovely just plain or you can eat them warm or cold with some maple butter.

  1. Hi Ursula!! what a useful recipe– for lunches or breakfast or tea or just a snack!! pinning this for later. And what is maple butter??– I was picturing butter with some maple syrup whipped in. These really do look delicious!! And– when there’s a power outage, do you still have heat? Glad that’s over. hugs!

    • Thank you Rhonda! We can buy maple butter from local maple producers and some stores. It’s just maple syrup cooked for a longer time until it has a spreadable consistency. We live in the country, when we have a power outage, there is no heat or anything else. We do have a compressor that we use if the outage is for a longer time. We just had another outage because of a windstorm. But it’s all fine now. hugs hugs

      • Wow, Ursula, that could be cold in the winter!! And fun to hear about the maple butter!! We have an in-law who makes maple syrup in up state New York every year– and we just got a gallon in the mail yesterday from him!! Such a treasure to have real homemade syrup!! Love your delicious blog Ursula! xo
