  • 1 cup chopped dried figs, plus 3 whole dried figs (Cheryl used 1 cup fresh figs chopped)
  • 1 cups bran cereal (All-Bran) (Cheryl used Nature's Path - Smart Bran)
  • 1 1/2 cup lowfat milk (Cheryl used non-fat milk)
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 3/4 cup natural applesauce (Cheryl used 3/4 cup Fig Jam)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 T. unsulfured molasses
  • 1 pc. large egg, beaten


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a 12 capacity muffin pan with cooking spray. Thinly slice the whole figs.
  • In a large bowl, combine the cereal and milk. Let sit until softened, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.
  • Add the applesauce, honey, oil, molasses and egg to the cereal mixture and stir until combined. Add the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  • Gently stir in the chopped figs. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and top each muffin with a fig piece. Tap the pan on the counter a few times to remove any air bubbles.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes (25-30 with fresh figs) or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool on wire rack.
