1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 cup cornmeal

1 Tbsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup plain yogurt

1 large ripe banana, mashed

Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C). Lightly grease a 12 cup muffin pan or line with large paper baking cups. In a large bowl, stir together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate large bowl, whisk together yogurt, mashed banana, sugar, oil and egg. Add yogurt mixture to flour mixture, mix just until dry ingredients are moistened and no dry spots remain. Stir in dried fruit. Spoon batter into muffin pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until firm to the touch and a toothpick inserted in centre muffin comes out clean.
