Pumpkin-Date Muffins

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 18 minutes
Makes: 12 muffins


  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup canned unsweetened pumpkin
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 1/3 cup (packed) light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons extra-light olive oil


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Line the cups of a standard (11-by-14-1.5 inch) muffin pan with paper liners or coat the cups with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine first 6 ingredients. Make a well in the center; set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, combine remaining 5 ingredients. Pour mixture into well in dry ingredients and stir until mix is just moistened and batter is still slightly lumpy.
  4. Pour batter into muffin cups until each is three-quarters full.
  5. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, or until tops are light golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes in pan on a rack, then remove from pan to cool completely.

Pancakes!!! Use Soya milk, low sodium salt and an egg for the mix, fry in coconut oil and top with real fresh lemon juice and a little caster sugar ( a little can't hurt can it? ).

Adjust the liquid and cook as a "pancake." Great for on-the-go breakfast. Thanks for the ideas; I'll try fixing my personal favorite recipes now.

Some of us would rather eat the real sugar and exercise rather than fill our body with anything fake (think about what healthy REALLY means...)Also When flour would have made this recipe far too heavy. I of course switched the milk to skim (and could have omitted .25% -50% of the sugar) - but all around a great recipe!
