Maple Syrup Muffins

Maple Syrup Cupcakes
This week I was in the mood for baking with Maple Syrup. In Québec we love our Maple Syrup. My mom always sends me a package, every Spring, with new Maple Syrup.

These muffins are a bit healthier with the addition of oats. You can bake any muffins or cupcakes that you love and frost them with this delicious Maple Syrup frosting. It was the highlight in this recipe. We liked it so much that I doubled the recipe. We love a thick frosting on our baked goods.

Some news to share, in March we are going to spend ten days on the Island of Oahu. I am looking for all of your suggestions, ie: restaurants, shoppings, attractions, beaches, things not to miss. We will stay in Waikiki but will rent a car for day trips. This is our first time in Hawaii. We cannot wait to go.

  1. I have yet to try making oatmeal muffins. Your maple frosting sounds delicious. Btw: I love maple butter. It's so good.

  28. We former Michiganders love maple syrup too! Your muffins look divine!

    We've been Hawaii many times. Usually do the other islands though, and mostly we stay on Maui. We only spend 1 night on Oahu- and usually not even that. When we do, we always stay at the Halekulani. Food there is ultra fabulous.

    Get a Fodors guide (or sneak a read in a book store) to find out the latest restaurants.

  34. Helene,
    What a yummy looking muffin. That frosting looks incredible.

    How great about your trip to Hawaii. I've never been but would love to one day.

  35. I love maple syrup so much!! So much, that I tend to save it up and eat it. I'm too scared to risk messing up a recipe and wasting all the precious syrup. Your muffins look very pretty!

  36. Love how the frosting hangs on those muffins. I was given a huge tin of maple syrup recently, but somehow I can't bring myself to open it - which sounds completely silly, I know!

  37. This muffin looks incredibly delicious. Doubling the frosting is a brilliant idea!
