Excellent texture and flavor! I used dried cherries and added 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips. Healthy, with just a little decadence! I also used cranberry juice instead of orange since that is what I had in. I omitted the orange zest. I will definitely makes these again. Thanks for posting!

Absolutely marvelous. I wanted chunks ah fruit so I chopped it instead of whizzing it in the food pro. I made 6 muffins and used 1 tbsp of Splenda brown sugar. All else was as ask. They are moist, tender and very yummy with the wonderful dried mixed fruit. I might mention that I used walnut oil. I needed to bake a bit longer than ask only to get a blush of brown on them (the ONLY thing I like about a silicone pan is the easy release) So good Paula! Thanks hon.
