Dried Fruits—Incredible Sources of Nutrients and Fiber
These muffins are flourless, chock full of wonderful sweet dried fruits, and delicious. Mega amounts of fiber, “good fats” from the nuts, and the more color in the fruits, the more nutrient-packed they are—so apricots, cranberries, dates, and raisins are perfect. Add a glass of low-fat milk, or smear some trans-fat-free peanut butter on the muffins—a totally fulfilling after-school snack.
