Total Calories: 353
Yield: 12 muffins


1/4 cup chopped dried fig or raisins
1/3 cup unsweetened apple juice or water
1/2 teaspoon powdered stevia extract
3 tablespoons canola oil
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon imitation maple flavoring
grated rind of 1/2 orange
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt or 4 ounces soft tofu
1/4 cup unsweetened apple butter
1/4 cup fresh or frozen orange juice
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup oat or wheat bran cereal
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2/3 cup chopped apple
1/4 cup chopped nuts or sunflower seed


• Preheat the oven to 350°F. Oil the muffin pans.
• Simmer the figs or raisins in the apple juice or water and stevia extract for 10 to 15 minutes until softened.
• Beat the oil and egg together in a mixing bowl. Add the maple flavoring and orange rind. Mix in the yogurt, apple butter, and orange juice. (If using tofu, blend the tofu with the apple butter and the orange juice in a blender first.) Mix in the stewed fruit.
• Mix the flour, bran, leavenings, salt, and nutmeg together in a bowl. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet, stirring as little as possible. Fold in the chopped apples and nuts before the flour is completely blended.
• Spoon the batter into the muffin pans, and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on a rack.
