Thanks to everyone who has posted fig recipes-- haven't tried any yet, but they sound good. I did find a website with info and recipes about figs (), but also whipped up some very good fig apple bran muffins.
Preheat oven to 400 F. Combine cereal and apple juice in large bowl. Let stand as you peel, core, and grate apple and chop figs. Add both along with oil and apple sauce. Sift dry ingredients into mixtue and stir to make batter. Fill cups of oiled muffin pan or baking cups and bake about 18 minutes. Muffins are done when toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
Between the figs and the bran, these are high in fiber, and with only 3 T of oil, they're lower in fat than the muffins on the back of the All Bran box, and very tasty. They're not dry or bland, but for an even sweeter muffin without additional fat, you could whip up a simple glaze with ½ c powdered sugar, ½ T vanilla extract and 1 T skim milk. Just whisk them together and pour over the muffins. Enjoy! Posted to EAT-L Digest by Nolan Richardson <elemeno-p@...> on Aug 3, 1997
