READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by mandabears

I got this recipe from a VeryBestBaking recipe booklet and had to try it. It takes like autumn with apples and nuts. I used real maple syrup instead of the imitation maple extract.

Wow! This was really nice! I liked the flavors of maple and apple together; different yet familiar. I used 1 c whole wheat pastry for one of the cups of white, oat bran instead of wheat bran, and regular milk instead of evaporated. These also had a nice texture--firm but not dry; a nice balance of butter and bran...I also liked the fact that it made such a big batch. I made 40 mini-muffins (they only took about 13-15 minutes) and one loaf (for the freezer). I found this recipe because I was trying to use up my homemade pie filling (I'm not very good at pie crusts!). This was a great breakfast on a rainy fall morning.
