    HokiesMom's Note:

    From TOH muffin booklet. Submitted by Judy C. I am saving this recipe for the fall season as I just think it will go great with that season. I love dates and these just seem really simple to throw together. It states these muffins can be frozen up to 3 months too. Another tip offered is to spray your paper liners with non-stick spray and then the liners peel off very easily without leaving crumbs behind. Hmmmm.

      Wowzer..these sure are tasty and not overly sweet. I love having muffins on hand in the freezer for pulling out as my mid-afternoon snack. The dates were a welcome addition and something I wish I incorporated more into my recipes. I did omit the walnuts, although I'm sure they'd be a nice addition. I did up the amount of cinnamon (you know me) to 3/4 t's. I should mention too that I chose not to use paper liners. Made for SweetTraditions Tag.~
