  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease or line 18 muffin cups with your favourite coloured or themed paper liners.
  2. Tip

    Have everyone wash their hands and put on their aprons. While the oven is heating up, prep the ingredients and measuring tools. It'll be ready before you know it!

  3. Muffins: Combine, in a medium bowl, evaporated milk and vinegar.
  4. Tip

    Show your kids the science behind souring milk. As you mix the evaporated milk and vinegar, have them watch the change in texture as it curdles and turns lumpy.

  5. Add oats and stir to combine. Reserve.
  6. Mix, in a separate bowl, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  7. Combine, in another bowl, egg, oil and brown sugar. Add reserved oatmeal mixture. Add liquid mixture to dry ingredients. Stir in grated apple just until combined.
  8. Tip

    Have your kids stir the mixture together while you grate the apple. Baking is better with teamwork!

  9. Take a big spoon or ice cream scoop and scoop batter into prepared cups.
  10. Topping: Combine all of the topping ingredients in a small bowl. With your fingers, sprinkle over muffins.
  11. Tip

    Let your kids sprinkle the topping onto their muffins. The more they add, the crunchier it will be!

  12. Bake muffins in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in centre of muffin comes out clean.


  • These muffins freeze really well, so you can bake them on the weekend, freeze them and enjoy them throughout the week. Great for a school snack or breakfast item on the go.
