Made the mix and then some muffins! Went to get my dried apricots and remembered I had given them to my daughter, so substituted cut dried cherries! Those served the purpose very well and the mix will come in handy again. By the way,I shared the recipe with her!
The muffins are fast and easy to make. Especially if you've previously made the oatmeal muffin mix and have it on hand. Leftover muffins remained moist even after reheating them the next morning. I will be making them again, but next time I will double the amount of apricots. While they were very good, I could barely taste the apricots over the cardamom.

ginger and sesame to a
