Strawberry Fig Muffins (no-oil)

My mom gave me this random bag of dehydrated fig bits she got on sale somewhere.  I know... it's random.  But I LOVE figs so I obviously needed to do something yummy with them.  Well I saw Snow White's no-oil muffin recipe and I knew that I had a winner on my hands.  
They were sooo good, between me and my bf, we polished off half of them just after them cooled enough to shovel into our mouths ^_^  Here's my modified version:

Strawberry Fig Muffins

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup applesauce (I used the pre-made cinnamon applesauce I had laying around)
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup white flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup dehydrated fig bits
1 cup frozen strawberry chunks

Mix everything but the strawberry and figs together (haphazardly is my method :)) in a large bowl.  Once well mixed, fold in the strawberries and figs.  Spoon into a greased muffin pan.  Bake at 350 for 18-22 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Makes a dozen delicious muffins.

I just left a comment but it didn't seem to work ...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I don't usually do a wash on my rolls until I'm making them for a special occasion and they tend to turn out fine. I just try not to add any extra flour when shaping them.
