    Chef Zephyr's Note:

    A lo-fat muffin that tastes great. This is a "heavy" muffin - not light & fluffy, but tasty. To reduce fat & cholesterol I replaced the butter with Smart Balance regular (not light) spread and used 2 egg whites.

      I love truth in advertising! :) Yes these are "heavy" but so tasty! And we like a more substantial muffin. I have made orange-cranberry muffins before but had never added chopped apricots. Delicious! Since these are a heavy muffin be sure not to over bake them. Made for Spring 2009 PAC Orphanage.

      I took your suggestion & subbed Smart Balance & egg whites for those to indicated ingredients, AND included the 2 fruits for A VERY, VERY TASTY TREAT, both for breakfast & for lunch! My kind of muffins, & the recipe is a certain keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs at the tail end of the current Pick A Chef]

      These muffins are great!! They seemed a little dry but, I might have cooked them a little longer than needed otherwise they were awesome and just what I was looking for!! I only put in a 1/2 cup of the cranberries and skipped the apricots to fit my own tastes. Thanks for posting!!
