Apricot Blueberry Muffins ( Low fat, Low Cal)

Dare I say it rivals with the discontinued Starbucks version??  Except mine of course has much fewer calories (152 vs. 350)... and less fat  = less guilt and more smiles.

My Fiance's mother loved the above mentioned Starbucks muffins and requested a recipe to help fill the void. Hopefully this one does the trick !

1/2 cup Blueberries
1 cup diced dried Apricots
1 Oranges
1 cup White Flour
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 cup Brown Sugar, packed
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 cup unsweetened Applesauce
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 large Eggs
2 tbsp unsalted Butter
2 pinches of Ground Cinnamon

 Preheat oven to 375F

In a small bowl reconstitute the diced dried apricot in the juice of one orange, add the zest of said orange and the blueberries to this bowl as well.

In another bowl, mix both flours, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and set aside

In a larger bowl mix the wet ingredients including the yogurt, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and butter.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Lastly fold in the apricots and blueberries.

                                                   Bake for 30 minutes.
