Date Muffins

Thursday Treat night! The state of affairs in the world today is absolutely frightening! I am still on the hunt for TP and trying to use all the stuff I have in my pantry so I don’t have to go to any stores. This Covid 19 has everyone on edge. My son said someone coughed at work and was sent to get tested for the virus.

I have had a box of dates sitting in my fridge for a few months and wanted to use them up. I thought what to make? I ended up making Date muffins. I can’t even remember what possessed me to buy dates…


  • 1 cup of milk (I used cashew milk)
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1 Tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour (all purpose)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup walnuts chopped (I didn’t have any and used cashews)
  • 1 cup of dates (chopped)
  • 5 tbsp butter (melted


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F
  2. Mix milk and egg and add vanilla extract in a mixing bowl
  3. Sift together the dry ingredients, including sugar
  4. Add to milk and egg mixture and mix until well moistened.
  5. Fold in nuts and dates, then the melted butter, mixing just enough to blend
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 18 minutes

Annette’s Review

Well, these were easy to make.  The recipe I found recommended using walnuts but I used cashews as that is all I had on hand.  Hardest part of the recipe was chopping the nuts and the dates.  I chopped those up and quickly mixed it all together.  Made exactly 12 muffins.  They browned up nice and were done in about 15-16 minutes.  I loved how they puffed up.  They were delicious!   Yummy!!
