Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

  • Eat Your Books

    Can substitute poppy seeds for chia seeds, and yogurt for cream cheese. Check quantity of oil in this recipe. Reviewer on Amazon says 3/4 cup oil plus 2T butter results in sloppy oily mess. She suggested 1/4 cup of oil works.

    Made this with bananas instead figs, and this is now my favorite whole wheat muffin. It's so moist and light, and almost all whole wheat flower.

    I should have definitely looked at the notes first because although very delicious using bananas (one of the fig substitutes mentioned in the book, along with raspberries and blueberries, and plums), my muffins were way too oily and sunk in the middle. I will definitely try again with less oil next time to see if that fixes both problems.
