These are absolutely divine. I have now made about five batches as fresh figs are in season. My boyfriend's co-workers keep devouring them. I have made a few adjustments. I used 1-1/2 cups of fresh chopped mission figs and reduce the mashed bananas to 1 cup. I also eliminate the chopped walnuts on top of the muffins. Because I just love figs so much, this allows for more of the fig flavor to come through
Wow! What a great muffin. I love figs, and the flavor goes really well with the bananas. I ran out of flour, so used 1/2 wheat flour & 1/2 all-purpose. I left out the walnuts (just don't care for nuts) and used calimyrna figs. I skipped the water in the muffin tin step, and filled my tins full, so I only got 10 muffins. I baked them for about 22 minutes and they came out just perfect.
