Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400F. To prepare the muffin tins, spray the indentations and the rims around them with nonstick spray, or line the indentations with paper muffin cups. If using silicon muffin tins, spray as directed, then place them on a baking sheet.
Whisk flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, ginger, almonds and salt in a medium bowl until uniform. Set aside.
Place the canned apricots with their syrup. lemon juice, and almond extract in a large blender or a food processor fitted with the chopping blade. Pulse 5 or 6 times, or until the mixture blends easily. Scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula, then process or blend for 20 seconds, or until smooth.
Whisk the eggs, yogurt, and oil in a large bowl until smooth, then whisk in the prepared apricot puree. With a wooden spoon, stir in the dried apricots and then the flour mixture, just until the apricots are evenly distributed in the batter.
Fill the prepared tins three-quarters full. Use additional greased tins or small ovensafe, greased ramekins for any leftover batter, or reserve the batter for a second baking. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the muffins are lightly browned with rounded tops. A toothpick inserted into the center of one muffin should come out with a crumb or two attached.
Set the pan on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes. Gently tip each muffin to one side to make sure the bottom are non stuck. If one is, gently rock the muffin back and forth to release it. Remove the muffins from the pan and cool them for 5 minutes more on the rack before serving. If storing or freezing the muffins, cool completely before sealing in an airtight container or freeze-safe plastic bags. The muffins will stay fresh for up to 2 days at room temperature or up to 2 months in the freezer.
