|Three Grain Date Muffins|
Dates, whole grains, molasses and buttermilk. What is not to like? These are really good, and make a great "grab and go" breakfast if need be.
Three Grain Date Muffins
adapted from: Mostly Muffins
375 degree oven
1 c bran morsels. (like bran buds)
3/4 c boiling water
1/2 c corn meal
1/2 c oat meal
1/4 c molasses
1/4 c butter or coconut oil melted and cooled
2 T honey
2 T oil
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 t vanilla
1 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
3/4 c chopped pitted dates
In a large bowl, combine bran morsels and boiling water, let stand 5 minutes. Stir in oats and corn meal. .
Add buttermilk through vanilla, stirring well.
In a medium bowl, stir together whole wheat flour, soda and salt. Add to the wet mixture, stir to combine well. There will be small lumps, do not over mix.
Stir in dates.
It only looks like the cups will bake over the top, this hearty muffin batter does not rise much, yet the muffins are not heavy. They have a chewy texture from the oats and dates.
Divide into 12 muffin cups, bake 20-25 minutes or until done in your oven.
Cool 5 minutes, remove from muffin tin or tip on their sides to avoid a soggy bottom.
