Fig & Walnut Muffins

After finishing the Esquimalt 5k on the weekend, we had a craving for some healthy muffins. Here is A's home made recipe.

1 1/4 cups spelt flour
1 1/4 cups oat bran
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp ginger
dash of salt
1 cup chopped figs
1/3 cup - half maple syrup and half
black strap molasses
1/3 cup applesauce
1/3 cup milk with 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup oil 1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prep 12 muffin cups with light coating of oil.
Whisk together flour, baking powder & soda, salt, and spices. Add the figs. Pour in maple syrup, molasses, apple sauce, milk and cider, oil and vanilla. Mix together until flour is absorbed. Fold in nuts. Pour into muffin cups and bake 25 minutes.

We like the versatility of this recipe - you can replace the figs with cranberries or bananas and the walnuts with something like chocolate chips. That's all folks, off to watch the Daily Show with Jon Stewart!
