Ingredients

No-stick cooking spray
1 1/2 cups (12-ounce container) apple juice concentrate, thawed
1/2 cup Dried Plum Puree
1/2 cup lowfat buttermilk
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat 18 medium muffin cups with cooking spray; set aside. In large bowl, combine apple juice concentrate, Dried Plum Puree, buttermilk and eggs until well blended; set aside. In medium bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt; add to dried plum mixture, stirring until just moistened. (Do not overmix.)
