Lekvar is a kosher product. It is prune puree and works great with spicy flavors like ginger. You might find it in the kosher section of your grocery store. Applesauce would probably work just as well to provide moisture, but would lack the depth of flavor found in dried plums. And I disagree with the last writer: these sound yummy to me!

sorry the muffins sound disgusting.
How can Eating Well make such a complicated recipe (trying to cut down on sugar and fat) and then use AP flour?! Whole wheat flour is so much healthier, and works great in muffins, esp the "White" whole wheat.
For truly healthy eating, there are far too many calories, carbs, and sodium. However, on the plus side is the flavor, the ginger and the amount of potassium in the muffins. The people who will enjoy this tasty recipe are those who watch their diets, exercise and can have a 'treat' such as these muffins on an occasion. On the whole, I would serve these to family and friends and let them make their own choices.
What is this "fruit puree fat replacement" or Lekvar? Never heard of it, don't have a clue where to buy it. Would applesauce work?
