These are my quick fix bran muffins. A little bit different from the wealth of bran muffins aready posted. These a light sweetness from the molasses and syrup that is nicely accented by the fruit. You can use any dried fruit you like in any 1/2 cup combination. My favorite is equal parts currants, apricots and plums (not prunes). Cranberries and apricots work well, or dates and raisins, or... You get the idea.

Great muffins. Added apple sauce. The next time I will add more dried apricots. Made small and big ones. A must make again. Killer just loved these. Small ones are for him.

Made this using plain yogurt and vanilla soy milk. I added some grated orange zest to the mix which was a lovely combination with the apricots and raisins. I used Splenda Brown Sugar Blend for the brown sugar. I think that the batter could have used a little more moisture. These make a dense, high fiber muffin. My yield was 10 muffins

Great muffins! I used a heaping tablespoon sour cream in place of yogurt, and used 1 extra large egg in place of the egg whites, I had to increse the brown sugar as it was not sweet enough (just personal preference) I used raisins and dried apricots, they baked out really nicley with a wonderful taste. Thank you Toni!...Kitten:)
