Date Molasses Bran Muffins

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

Preheat oven to 400 deg. F.

Makes about 15 muffins.

In a large bowl, whisk together
1 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Fold in the rind of 1 orange
and 1/2 cup chopped dates,
(I used scissors to cut up dates.)
set aside.

In another bowl add
1 1/4 All-Bran cereal
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup orange juice
Stir together and let stand for 3 minutes.

After 3 minutes,
 add to the Bran cereal mixture
1 eggs
3 tbsp vegetable oil
and 1/2 cup molasses.

Add both bowls together,
the flour mixture and the Bran mixture. 

Fill Muffin Tins
I used large muffin papers for the first time.
love them...

Bake 400deg. for 18-20 mins.

    Insert a toothpick in the centre of the muffin, 
if it comes out clean, it's done.


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.
