These Muffins are so delicious
and healthy, adding fiber to your diet.
Your kitchen will smell so nice while they are baking

1 cup White Flour
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
Whisk all the above together

Fold in the rind of 1 Orange and
 1 cup chopped Dates
 and set aside

In another bowl put
1 1/4 All-Bran Cereal
1/2 cup skim Milk
1/2 cup Orange Juice
Stir together and let stand 3 mins.
Chop up the Dates
then add:
3 tbsp Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup Molasses
Mix all ingredients together. flour & bran mixture

Fill Muffin Tins

Bake 400deg. for 20-25 mins.
I use a Convection Oven at 350 deg. for 20 mins.


Soften All Bran with Milk and Orange Juice

Let soften for approx 3 mins
Whisk together the 2 Flours, Baking Powder, Baking Soda and Salt    
Add the Orange Rind
Add the Chopped Dates, mix until all covered
 Add Molasses, Egg and Oil 
to the Bran Mixture, mix well

Fill Muffin Tins - I used large Muffin Papers for the first time 
Love them!!!

An Ice Cream Scoop works well for filling 
Bake 400deg. for 20-25 mins.
I use a Convection Oven at 350 deg. for 20 mins.

I insert a  toothpick into a Muffin and if it comes out clean, they are cooked.

The secret of good muffins is to stir the batter until the flour is just dampened.
The batter should be lumpy. 
Over mixing causes tunnels and a tough texture.
Perfect muffins are light and tender with rough shiny golden crusts.
