Fig Chocolate Chip Muffins

fig chocolate chip muffins

I found a lot of figs sold at supermarket, actually I’m not so familiar with this fruit (it’s not tropical fruit- it’s native to Middle East and Western Asia), I never tried this fruit in Indonesia. After I made  Fig Banana Smoothie  few weeks ago, I tried to make muffins with fig fruit and combine it with chocolate chips,  I enjoyed this for breakfast :-). So this is it ; fig chocolate chip muffins!
