ACDC (Apricot, Cranberry, Date, Cinnamon) Muffins

I'm by no means an ACDC music buff. About all I can tell you is they were all about heavy hard rock and roll. That's exactly what this muffin creation reminded me of; they are heavy, dense and will have your bowels rocking and rolling (in a good way!). Plus, they are incredibly moist thanks to the applesauce and fruit without using any added oil. 

So, if you are an ACDC fan, enjoy while rocking out. If not, still enjoy!

ACDC Muffins
(Apricot, Cranberry, Date, Cinnamon)

1/4 cup dried apricots, chopped
1/4 cup dried dates, pitted and chopped
1 cup water
1/3 cup cranberries
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup applesauce
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
large pinch of pumpkin pie spice

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit. Line 18 muffin cups with liners or use non-stick spray.
2. Boil the water and pour over chopped dates and apricots. Let sit about 10 minutes.
3. Combine other ingredients in large mixing bowl, stirring in date/apricot mixture when ready.
4. Bake until set and golden, about 25 minutes.
