Autumn Muffins
October 15, 2010

Well, I thought these definitely did NOT live up to the rave reviews they've been getting :( I went with the apples (winesap), cranberries (dried), figs (fresh), and roasted hazenuts, but made some other changes. I substituted apple sauce for half the butter and used 2.5 cups all-purpose flour and another half cup of soy flour (which can give it a nuttyish flavor and adds protein). I think what bothered me about these muffins is the flavor combination of the fruits and nuts - I'm not a big fan of it. I definitely would not use hazelnuts again, if anything I'd go with walnuts. My husband thought these tasted like fruit cake! I can definitely see how this would be a good base recipe for other muffins and I feel like that is what a lot of other people are rating this recipe on. Not a ton of other reviewers used the fruits and nuts listed in the recipe. This would be a great base for a cranberry orange muffin or blueberry muffin. (yum!) These just did not remind me of autumn at all and were not very good. On a brighter note I got 24 regular-sized muffins out of the batter.
