I do like a bowl of hot oatmeal for breakfast. Especially on a cool morning. One of my favorite ways to enjoy that bowl of oatmeal is with some brown sugar sprinkled on top. However, oatmeal isn’t a very portable item for breakfast on the go, but these maple brown sugar oatmeal muffins ARE!
Today’s muffin recipe takes the all the flavors of a bowl of maple and brown sugar oatmeal along and puts them into muffin form. This may just be my new favorite muffins. Fresh from the oven is the best way to enjoy them, but they are still great the next day.
After these come out of the oven, the brown sugar helps make a slightly crunch top. The texture that the oatmeal adds to the muffin is wonderful. My husband, however, had a different opinion on the texture. He said the muffins were too chewy for him. Next time, I think I may use half quick oats and half old fashioned oats and see if that helps with the chewiness of these muffins for him.
These aren’t super strong as far as the maple flavor goes, but if you wanted it stronger, you could try a little maple flavoring in these Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal Muffins.
