  • Yield: 12 muffins 1x


  • 4 oz. soft goat cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. grated orange zest
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 6 oz. dried figs, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF and lightly oil a muffin tray, or line it with 12 paper/silicone liners.
  2. In a small bowl, prepare the filling by combining goat cheese, honey, and orange zest. Stir until fully combined and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a medium sized bowl, combine egg, oil, applesauce, honey, and Greek yogurt. Stir until fully combined.
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined; do not overmix. Fold in figs.
  6. With a spoon, spoon batter into muffin tins until about halfway full. Add 1 tsp. filling to each tin, and cover with more muffin batter. Make sure the cheese filling is fully covered.
  7. Bake muffins for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges start to brown.
  8. When finished, allow to cool for about 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tin and allowing to cool completely on a wire rack.
