Who knew baobab and figs make such a delicious combination! These quick and easy muffins are not only incredibly tasty but also pack in extra fibre for a happy tummy. Whether you choose dried or fresh figs, the results will be equally delicious. Each type of fig has its own benefits. Fresh figs contain more beta-carotene which converts into vitamin A, whilst dried figs are rich in pectin – a type of soluble fibre which helps regulate blood sugar levels.
