Apricot-Wheat Germ Muffins

EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

Your rating: None Average: 3.2 (93 votes)

Nutty toasted wheat germ and tangy dried apricots give these muffins a homey, satisfying flavor. Plumping dried fruit before adding it to the batter keeps the muffins moist.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I was pleasantly surprised after I made these...they were fantastic! I didn't have any batter that I couldn't fit into my tins, and the muffins after 15 min were quite large. My picky eater loves these better than any of the other muffins...

good hint for all recipes using dried fruit: soak the dried fruit in hot water. i use a electric kettle and pour just enough water to cover the fruit. soak for about 20 min and i guarantee your baked goods will added moisture.

I love these muffins! They were exactly what I needed to curb my sweet tooth. The muffins only needed 15 mins of baking time. The recipe called for orange zest but I didn't have an orange on hand so I used a 1/2 tsp of orange extract to add a little orange flavour. Also, I used 1/2 cup of the splenda brown sugar instead of the 1 cup of brown sugar to save on a few calories. I will be making these ones again, for sure.

I also liked being able to load the muffin tins right up, and was impressed with how well the muffins rise. The recipe made a dozen muffins like it said, not like some recipes I've tried.
I'll make these again but will try using less orange zest, reducing the amount of dried apricots, and making the dried apricot pieces very small - my family isn't crazy about big chunks of apricot.
