      1/2  cup           golden raisins
      1/2  cup           chopped pitted dates
      1/2  cup           dried apricots -- chopped
    1      cup           buttermilk
      1/3  cup           molasses
      1/3  cup           apple butter
    1      large         egg white
    3      tablespoons   canola oil
    1      tablespoon    fresh lemon juice
    1 1/2  teaspoons     lemon zest -- grated
    1      teaspoon      vanilla
 
 Position rack in the upper third of the oven; preheat to 425 degrees.  Coat
 12 muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray.
  In a large bowl, stir together bran, flours, baking powder, baking soda and
 salt.  Stir in raisins, dates and dried apricots.  In a separate bowl, whisk
 together buttermilk, molasses, apple butter, egg white, oil, lemon juice,
 lemon zest and vanilla.  Stir into the flour mixture just until the dry
 ingredients are moistened.  Do not overmix.  Divide the batter among the
 prepared muffin cups.  (They wil be nearlly full.)  Bake for 15-20 mintes,
 or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Turn the
 muffins out onto a rack and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
