I’ve been waiting quite a while for just the right apple muffin recipe to come along.  Every time I found one that looked promising, the reviews were mediocre at best.  Why was it so hard to find a good apple muffin?  As soon as I saw this recipe, I knew it would be the end of my searching…all because of that one magic word – butterscotch.  These were as simple as any other muffin to throw together, but the combination of oats, chopped apples, toasted pecans and of course the butterscotch chips mixed into the batter made for a delicious and complex flavor.  If you’re less of a sweet tooth than I, you might want to skip the butterscotch chips but I have yet to meet something that was “too sweet”, so I loved them.  Also, the dried apple slice on top is obviously optional but I thought it added an extra layer of flavor and texture that was just right.  Yum, yum!
