Hearty Date Bran Muffins

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by - Carla -

These moist and hearty muffins start any day off right. Dress them up with a spoonful of your favorite fruit jam or enjoy them "au natural". The prep time does not include the time it takes to cool the date mixture.

This is Jim's wife. I made these and did a couple changes. I used prunes instead of dates. I used yogurt instead of buttermilk. I needed to bake them about 31 min. before they were done. The batter was a little too thick, I guess because of the yogurt. I will make next time using the buttermilk.
