Sweet figs and a filling of tangy goat cheese give a surprising twist to these hearty breakfast muffins. Make a batch of these on the weekend and enjoy them for breakfast all week long. If you’re not a fan of goat cheese, try them with cream cheese instead.

As other commenters have mentioned, the goat cheese filling did NOT turn out creamy and runny like the picture shows, but almost like the filling of a twinkie. Despite this, they were delicious. I didn't have enough dried figs so I added dates, which worked well. I will definitely be making these again.

I made these muffins as part of the tackling the bulk bins series I do on Mother Nature Network. The dried figs came from the bulk bins at my store.

They are really good, and I will definitely be making them again.

A very good muffin. I like the flavors and the crunch that the turbinado sugar gives. However I would have liked the filling to be creamier in texture like the photo expresses. I used Cypress Grove Chevre. Maybe a different brand next time.

Great! Loved them and I'm not a muffin person but they just sounded yummy and they were. Used 1/2 regular flour, 1/2 whole wheat because my local natural foods place didn't have the type recommended despite having all the rest of the Red Mill products.

These are very good. I made them with the low fat cream cheese and both my husband and I liked the taste of the white whole wheat. I will be making these muffins again.
