This is a Weight Watchers recipe that was emailed to me. I haven't tried it yet; however, plan to in the near future. I have tried many Weight Watcher recipes and all have been very good!

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!
Just super,I used some dried lemon bits,cranberries,raisins,and soaked apricot I had in vodka ,yummy
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.
