These muffins were amazing. I'm allergic to sugar and therefore had to adapt them (I also adapted them to make them a bit healthier), and they were absolutely divine. You can check my adaptation out at my blog, here! http://kaitlinwithhoney.com/2010/07/22/honey-fig-goat-cheese-muffins/

Loved these muffins! They're filling and the cream in the middle is a treat. I substituted dates for the figs and light cream cheese for the goat cheese. They kept in the freezer well and made for an easy treat the next weekend.
