1 1/2 cups
real maple syrup
These muffins were great. I cut the recipe in half, added a bit more syrup than called for, and poured it into 12 mini muffin cups . I used Grade A Dark Amber syrup, so it was just a subtle but very nice maple flavor. I also replaced the sugar with Splenda, and used almost all wheat flour because i ran out of white. Wonderful recipe! Later note: I made this again in a regular muffin pan and with the whole recipe. I replaced the shortening with 1 tbs shortening, 1 tbs butter, and 2 tbs applesauce. I used a little over 2/3 cup of maple syrup and added a little less than 1/4 cup of toasted chopped walnuts. This time i used all white flour, and it was soooo delcious, i ate about 5 of them. The bit of toasted walnuts was REALLY delicious in it. I LOVE this recipe to death.
I didn't care for these. You can BARELY taste the maple syrup. Not worth the time. My fiance liked them though. I doubt I'll make these again.
Just a tip for those disappointed in the weak maple flavor: When baking with maple syrup, it is a good idea to use Grade B syrup, which is stronger flavored and intended for baking or cooking rather than as a table syrup.
i just made these little gems,and they are soooo good. only change one thing ,i used brown sugar.and you can taste the maple. please don't add any spices or youll lose that maple taste.will make these again & again thanks .
Huge hit at our house! Light, chewy, and sweet without being cloying. DBF is a maple-aholic and this recipe was an instant success. :-)
I used Grade B maple syrup, as this is our preference and what was on-hand. Grade B isn't easy to find outside sugar houses, so when it's gone, I'll probably use whatever real Grade A is commercially available and add some maple flavoring.
Light, delicious muffin. I loved the maple and added extra oats for more texture. Kids loved it for a snack too!!
How delightful to find a recipe that is so quick and easy--and delicious! These were refreshing in that they are very light tasting--nice texture with just a subtle, wonderful maple taste without being overly sweet.
NIce Light muffins. I would have liked them to be sweeter, next time I make them I'll be adding brown sugar. I also made them with vanilla soy milk instead of milk.
they froze and reheated nicely
