2cups toasted wheat bran cereal (such as Wheat Chex)
3/4cup dried figs, chopped
1cup boiling water
1/2cup butter, softened
Preheat oven to 400F. Line 24 muffin cups with muffin papers.
Stir flours, baking soda, spices and salt in a small bowl to blend. Combine bran cereal and figs in a small bowl; add boiling water and let stand.
Beat the butter in a large bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in sugar and honey. Beat in eggs 1 at a time. Alternately, add buttermilk and flour mixtures blending well after each. Mix in bran mixture. Divide batter among lined muffin cups.
