• I made these muffins the other day and went to pin the recipe (on Pinterest.com), and there were no images to pin.  Tragedy.  So, one day I may take pictures and make it pin-able for myself, but for now, here it is for all of you to enjoy.  I was drawn to it because of it's lack of honey, sugar, or maple syrup.  And yes, I keep dates around my house.  There are two pounds in my fridge right now.  Next time I make it, I'm doubling the dates and leaving out the prunes, because I think they would taste very similar to a date bran muffin if I did that.  I'll let you know how it works out.  Maybe.  If I remember.  On second thought, you'd better just ask me how it worked out, if you care.  I'll also just edit the recipe to reflect the changes I made, but the link to the original is at the bottom.
  • apple , cored (peel if you want)
  • prunes
  • dates
  • 1 large banana
  • eggs
  • 1/4 c. coconut oil
  • teaspoon vanilla
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • cup rolled oat
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • teaspoon baking soda

Puree the fruit.  Add it to the liquid ingredients (juice, eggs, coconut oil (melted) and I added water too.  I added more liquid than it called for, but who knows how much, because I just kept pouring it in until it worked for me.  But I was starting with whole wheat kernels in the blender, so I needed more liquid to get it all smooth. So if you used regular flour, I bet you'd be fine with that amount.)  Mix dry ingredients.  Mix dry and liquid.  Try not to overmix.  Bake them in little cups.  At 350.  Until they're done.  (20 minutes, probably more.)
