    JustJanS's Note:

    I came across this when looking to use some of the walnuts and dates I have in my pantry. A magazine find, it's yummy.

      5 or more stars - I used this batter and put into muffin papers - worked so well and they are delicious. I did add extra walnuts. I had great success here.
