Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup apple juice
1/2 cup finely chopped dried apricots
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup uncooked farina (such as Cream of Wheat)
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup stick margarine or butter -- melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large egg whites -- lightly beaten
1 (8-ounce) carton plain fat-free yogurt
Cooking spray
2 tablespoons sugar

Preheat oven to 400.
Combine apple juice and apricots in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover with heavy-duty plastic wrap, and vent. Microwave at HIGH 3 minutes or until apricot mixture boils. Let stand, covered; cool completely. Drain apricots in a colander over a bowl, reserving apple juice.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine the flour and the next 5 ingredients (flour through nutmeg) in a medium bowl, and make a well in center of mixture. Combine 3 tablespoons reserved apple juice, margarine, vanilla, egg whites, and yogurt; stir well with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Stir in reserved apricots.

Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center. Remove muffins from pans immediately; place on a wire rack. Dip muffin tops in remaining apple juice; sprinkle each with 1/2 teaspoon sugar.
