Rose's adaptation from Shirley. Yummy morning muffins with a twist; you blender in whole oranges! Be careful about eating too many - the fiber can be potent.

I can't get cranberries where I live, so I used dates. The recipe is very nutty, grainy, healthy-tasting and delicious. I think it will be a huge hit with my kids for breakfast. Thanks for sharing this recipe
