WOW, these are fantastic! I cut the recipe back for 12 and totally regret it--we have no leftovers! I used mostly oat flour with some white wheat, and the texture was to die for. I called them Fig Newton muffins and that made DS and DH go to town on them! I used white wheat and oatmeal flours and slightly less sugar than called for (and white as I was out of brown). I will make these again for sure, and will probably use the muffin base for all sorts of fruit muffins. Thanks for posting! Made for Healthy Choices ABC Tag.
