At first I thought it might be too sweet. Dates and honey together ? But when I gave it a try I was really happy with the final result. Fresh from the oven muffins were fluffy with crunchy crust, not too sweet. Next day they were more dense and moist but still very tasty. I hope you will enjoy them too. The recipe comes from this website. Ingredients for 12 - 14 muffins: 225g flour 1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp soda 110g porridge oats + 2 tbsp to sprinkle the muffins 75g sugar 140g dried dates 125 ml canola oil 1 egg 125 ml low fat milk 90g honey Chop the dates into small chunks. Preheat the oven to 180C. Line muffin tins with paper cases. Sift the flour, baking powder and soda into a big bowl. Next add the oats, dates and sugar and mix them well. Set aside. In separate jug whisk the egg, add the milk, oil and honey. Mix all ingredients together. Pour the mixture into a bowl with dry ones. Mix until just combined. Spoon the batter into paper cases, up to 3/4 full. Sprinkle with oats. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes in preheated oven. When well risen and golden on top, remove from the oven. Transfer to the wire rack and cool them down. Enjoy !
