Maple Walnut Muffins

My husband loves maple walnut muffins and he’s been requesting I develop a recipe for his favourite treat for a while now. These muffins are sweetened with pure maple syrup and just a little brown sugar. Pure maple extract adds rich flavour, with a touch of cinnamon for warmth and spice. Looking for more maple…
