Date Nut Muffins

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Chef Lele

This recipe uses ground up oatmeal to get in whole grains and soluble fiber but still maintain a lovely light texture and sweetness. Feel free to mix up the fruit and nuts, but the date-apricot-almond combo is quite luscious.

Made a double batch of these for my other half to take to a weekly meeting he attends, & they were a big hit! A big hit here, too, 'cause I set aside 4 of them just for the 2 of us at home! Another time, though, & the batch stays right here ~ Really liked the combo of fruits & nuts in these muffins! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]
