Just an FYI...these are NOT sugarless. They should be labeled as "No sugar added" or something along those lines. The dates, raisins, and prunes are actually incredibly high in sugars. Natural sugars are better for you, but this recipe would not necessarily be good for someone who needs to, or wishes to, strictly limit sugars in his/her diet.


I made these muffins to "disguise" prunes for a friend during a long recouperation. Although I figured out I should add the water to the fruit before cooking, maybe it should be a bit clearer about that. I mixed together a topping of chopped nuts, brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkled a little on before baking (which I do with a lot of muffins and bread). They are very tasty and light! Thanks for sharing. EV


In a word . . . YUM! I made these for my toddler twins and ended up eating as much as they did. (They loved them too.) I didn't have prunes so I used dried cranberries instead. I also substituted a mix of wheat germ and ground flaxseed for 1/4 cup of flour to add a bit more nutrition (and a full teaspoon of baking powder to deal with the heavier flour mix). We loved them and will definitely be making them regularly.
