DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400*. Lightly coat a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray or line with paper liners.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the bran, orange juice, honey, and molasses. Set aside for about 5 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the unbleached or all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Stir the applesauce, egg whites, and orange peel into the bran mixture. Add the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Fold in the dates.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a rack for 5 minutes. Invert onto the rack and serve warm or at room temperature.
