Oh wow, these were SOOOOOOO good. They were good like a bowl of oatmeal with dried fruit and nuts. I used whole wheat pastry flour and brummel and brown instead of butter and they turned out great. My new favorite muffins!
Finally! A scrumptious, not-too-sweet start to the day. I'll make a double batch next time and freeze the extra. So good! Thanks.
Well, I changed the fruit up so much I'm not sure that my review accurately reflects this recipe. But- it was your technique of using the dried fruit that is what made these muffins unique, and I give five stars to that! I could only find different dried fruit at the farmer's market this week, so I used dried apricots, dried cherries, dried apples and raisins. I did end up using a teaspoon or two of honey, as these fruits are not as sweet as dates and prunes. Used whole wheat pastry flour. These muffins are tasty and a nice light texture that I was not expecting at all. They are just great, and will make them again for sure. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Great recipe, we love these muffins. Yummy right out of the oven I also reheated them a few seconds in the microwave. Very easy to make, easy to follow instructions. I used 2 cups chopped prunes, also used whole wheat flour. My DH couldnn't belive they were made with prunes. Dorel, thank you very much for posting this recipe, that I will be making often.
love it!!! Substituted craisins for the raisins, and apricots for the pruns. Love it, love it, love it.!!!
This recipe was great! I have made it twice in 2 weeks. I'm currently not eating any kind of refined sugar at all, so this recipe worked perfectly for that. I used 1 cup more of prunes to substitute for the dates. (The only dates they had at my supermarket had sugar in them). I also used wheat flour instead of all purpose and they came out SO moist and Chef Dorel is right, you would never know they didn't have sugar in them. This recipe was great for my 13 1/2 month old daughter as well. She loved it too! I'm having her get a healthy start in her diet in life so she does not eat any refined sugar as well. So this was a recipe we both could share! Worked out well. She even had some of these muffins with whole milk in the mornings. Thanks so much for the recipe Dorel!
