The flavor of these was nice, but between the nuts and oatmeal they came out dry and kind of grainy. I ended up eating the muffin tops off where the buttery apple slices moistened them up. Also at 25 minutes mine were bordering on burned. I would cut it down to 18-20.

Really enjoyed these muffins. The cheddar cheese is an inspired addition and the apple slice on top makes them very attractive. Good flavour, tender crumb.
