Plate Presentation

If your having people over for brunch display your muffins on a tower.  If you don't have a tower you can make one by stacking a small bread plate on top of a dinner plate by using a small bowl which is featured in a photo here.  This gives a dramatic look to such a simple food.  

Using a tulip muffin wrap is a fun way to display a muffin and makes it easy to grab and eat.

Budget Tips

This item is relatively inexpensive with just a few ingredients.  

To reduce some expenses skip the walnuts as this is the most expensive ingredient for this recipe.  If you do purchase walnuts select the whole pieces and break them up yourself as they are typically less expensive than the packaged bit & pieces.

Purchase the grains & figs in the bulk section of a grocery store, you'll reduce you expense by 20-30% as opposed to prepackaged foods.

Storage Recommendations

The best ways to store these muffins is to wrap them in a paper towel and place them in a zip lock bag or reusable wax food wrap

They will store up to 5-6 days if stored properly

These muffins also freeze well
