Preparation Time:
Cooking Time:
12 portions
Metric Imperial


  • 2/3 cup maple sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unpeeled apples, grated
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups large flake oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk or soy milk
  • 1 cup maple butter


  1. Preheat oven to 180° C (350° F). Place paper liners in 12 muffin cups.
  2. In a large bowl, use a fork to combine the maple sugar, oil, and eggs. Add the vanilla and apples, and mix again. Incorporate the flour, oat flakes, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and milk. Mix with your fork just long enough to moisten the dough.
  3. Use a large ice cream scoop to fill the muffin cups with dough.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown. Let them cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then remove.
  5. Use a small knife to carve a circle in each muffin, carefully digging out a small cone-shaped cavity in the centre. Remove these cones and reserve them.
  6. Fill each muffin with 20 g (1 tbsp) of maple butter. Put the little cones back in the cavities, removing part of their bottoms to make them fit, if necessary.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
