These are like apple pie for breakfast, only they're justifiable! Freeze a batch for a good start to any day of the week.
Servings: 12 muffins

3/4 cup (175 mL) quick-cooking rolled oats
1-3/4 tsp (9 mL) baking powder
1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon

I tried these over the winter and they were absolutely delicious. The crunchy crumble on the top is a perfect finish to a moist, comforting muffin. If you enjoy apple crisp and apple pie, this recipe is a must.
