      Dates, pecans, and bran muffins are among my favourites, so I had to try these. I would call them Muffin Nirvana. I got 12 muffins (using extra-large cups filled to the top) as well as two mini-loaves. (Well, actually, I got one loaf and a big mess in my oven, but that's my own fault!) For a healthier muffin I followed Epi-Curious' suggestions about flour and spices, replacing the 2 3/4 cups A.P. with a blend of 3/4c whole wheat flour, 1 cup all purpose flour, and 1 cup wheat bran. This combination is used in Apple Date Muffins(#151382) by Clutter Collector. I also added about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 1/3 tsp nutmeg. (I will grate whole nutmeg into just about anything - I am hooked on the stuff!) This produced a tender, but sturdy and flavourful muffin that would probably travel very well to work, school, or where ever - this is, if there are any left!

      These are wonderful muffins, but I substitute a mix of wheat flour, bran, and oatmeal for the white flour. Also add some cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, or ginger for a really spicy muffin. You can substitute a mix of nuts for the pecans, but I found pecans to be the "hands down" tastiest choice!
