Fresh Fig Muffins

This recipe was given to me by a friend from California. It has a wonderful flavor, is moist and still feels light!! Works wonderful with green or purple figs!! Try with a bit of cinnamon ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, an orange sauce or you might like a bit of a ginger cream...

You could make a savory treat with this and serve it next to a cheese platter!!

Enjoy Alissa

Note: Do not overmix!
