Triple-Apricot Ambrosia Muffins

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 622
Yield: 12 Muffins


1 cup unbleached flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1 large egg
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1 cup dried apricot chopped
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1 (16-ounce) can apricot packed in fruit juice well drained
1/4 cup all fruit jam
1/2 cup flaked coconut


1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

2. Sift the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the dried apricots and coconut and toss to coat.

3. Purée the canned apricots in a food processor or blender to yield about 1 cup. Add the wet ingredients and pulse to blend. (You can also use a fork or potato ricer to mash the peaches, and then blend in the wet ingredients by hand.)

4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture. Stir just until mixed. Do not overstir.

5. Spoon the batter into a greased or papered muffin tin. Fill each cup nearly to the top.

6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

7. Cool the muffins at least 10 minutes before removing from the tin. When they have further cooled to room temperature, spread a teaspoon of apricot preserves on top of each and sprinkle with a large pinch of coconut.
