Good Morning! Healthy Muffins w/a Surprise

Had a not so good recipe my friends at Chow helped me fix and I tell you, they are good muffins now! Moist, healthy, and a little sweet surprise in the middle.

Instructions

  1. 1Preheat to 425. Combine goat or cream cheese with the agave or honey and 1/4 tsp of vanilla. Set aside, this is a filling and should be thick.
  2. 2Mix all dry indgredient but the dried fruit.
  3. 3Lightly beat the eggs and add all other wet ingredients (but not the filling).
  4. 4Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until just combined. Fold in the dried fruit of choice.
  5. 5Fill muffin tins 1/2 way. Make generous tsp balls of the filling and place 1 in the middle of each muffin. Cover with remaining batter.
  6. 6Bake until edges start to brown and the tops spring back when gently pressed – 10 minutes in my oven on convection.
  7. 7Let cool 5 minutes in pan before turning out on a wire rack.
