Maple Apple Muffins

From RecipeGirl...


1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour {Kelly's note: I used 1 1/2 cups for altitude}
1 cup quick-cooking oats
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbs baking powder {Kelly's note: I used ~3tsp}
1½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ cup milk
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
¼ cup maple syrup
1 large egg, slightly beaten
2 cups chopped, peeled apples (I used Granny Smith)
12 pecan halves (optional)

1/3 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbs maple syrup

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease 12-cup muffin tin or line with paper liners {KM: I got 16 muffins out of it, so may need another pan}.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients (through cinnamon).

3. In a small bowl, mix milk, butter, syrup and egg; stir into dry ingredients and mix just until moistened. Fold in apples.

4. Fill prepared muffin cups ¾-full (this is easiest to do when you use an ice cream scoop). Top each with a pecan half. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.

5. For glaze, mix sugar and syrup; drizzle over cooled muffins.

Yield: 1 dozen {Kelly's note: I got 16 out of it...altitude?}
