Mother in law gave this recipe to me. The muffins are high and fiber and tasty. Can substitute any dried fruit (or omit) for raisins. Or use 1 cup sugar instead of the honey.

One thing I meant to add to the recipe is that it is very versatile. Use any dried fruit or none. I have even used choc. chips. Instead of 7/8 C of honey, you can use a cup of sugar. If you use dried fruit, you may want to cut back on the sugar or honey. It is really up to you. Also, you may not have to sift the whole wheat flour. If you do, unless you dump the "remains" back in, you will remove some fiber.
