Nutty Maple Muffins, Holiday Handi-Foil Recipe

I had such a great time working with Handi-foil the last time. Remember, I made Pumpkin Dinner Rolls using their pans? I was very happy when they asked me to come up with another recipe for them, this time something for the holidays. I got a nice new set of Christmas pans and I wanted to use them as soon as possible.

The problem was to decide on what to make. With all this fabulous, holiday baking all around me, I slowed down on the baking in my kitchen. I would like for my butt to stay in the same zip code. Hehe.
So I thought and I thought, and decided to make some muffins after all. My in-laws were coming over to babysit the little man and I knew that I would have plenty of help with the muffins. Good, my butt was saved from eating the muffins!
The muffins turned out really good! I split one with the little man. It’s good to split things with toddlers because you only manage to get a bite or two, if you are lucky. These muffins are soft and moist and full of fall flavors. The hazelnuts made a wonderful addition too. I also love the fact that these pans come with a lid and liners. Having a lid makes it easy to send the muffins home with guests.

(Makes 10 muffins)
1 1/2 cups of flour
1/2 cup of dark brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup of oats (old fashioned not instant)
1 egg
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup hazelnuts, chopped


1. Preheat the oven to 350. Lightly grease and line Handi-foil muffin pan with muffin liners.
2. Whisk together the liquid ingredients and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
3. Add oats, flour, salt and baking powder, mix well until fully incorporated. Do not over-mix. (do not add hazelnuts yet)
4. Separate the batter between the muffin cups, filling them three quarters of the way.
5. Top off with chopped hazelnuts.
6. Bake the muffins for 22 minutes. Make sure to do a toothpick test for doneness before taking the muffins out.
