READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Dorel

This is from another website. I did a few changes, I have made 12 muffins with 2 cups of chopped prunes. Also made them with dried apricots and dates. You would never know these didn't have sugar in them.

Oh wow, these were SOOOOOOO good. They were good like a bowl of oatmeal with dried fruit and nuts. I used whole wheat pastry flour and brummel and brown instead of butter and they turned out great. My new favorite muffins!
