These are my quick fix bran muffins. A little bit different from the wealth of bran muffins aready posted. These a light sweetness from the molasses and syrup that is nicely accented by the fruit. You can use any dried fruit you like in any 1/2 cup combination. My favorite is equal parts currants, apricots and plums (not prunes). Cranberries and apricots work well, or dates and raisins, or... You get the idea.
