Whole Wheat Apricot Muffins

Randy Mayor; Melanie J. Clarke
Yield 1 dozen (serving size: 1 muffin)
These muffins are best served warm, so reheat before serving if you've made them a day or two ahead. Wrap the muffins in aluminum foil, and heat at 350° for 10 to 15 minutes. Try varying the recipe by using dried fruit in place of the apricots--dried cherries or dates, for instance.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons grated orange rind
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup finely chopped dried apricots
  • Cooking spray
