fig date & walnut muffins

In trying to be healthier and use wholewheat flour, less sugar and more fruit and vegetables, i decided to try out a recipe from Amy Bites her delicious recipe for fig, date and walnut muffins turned out AMAZING! Even when i made a big boo boo and added the toppings into the filling.....whoops!

Fig, Date, and Walnut Muffins
Recipe from Amy Bites and below is what i ended up making =)

2 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups low-fat milk
1 1/4 cups chopped dried figs
3/4 cup chopped dried dates
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup oats
1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 400°.

Combine flour, sugars, oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Make a well in center of mixture.

Mix milk, figs, dates, walnuts, oil, vanilla, and egg . Add fig mixture to flour mixture, mixing just until combined. Divide batter evenly among 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray.

Bake at 400° for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack for 5 minutes; remove muffins from pans, and cool completely on rack.
It made 36 mini muffins for me, which i freeze for easy packing in lunches or snacking =)
