Date Mini Muffins

Date Mini Muffins

Aren’t these cute?  They are little bites of muffin (I have them in a mini ceramic loaf pan so they may appear bigger than they are).  They aren’t very sweet ~ only 1/4 cup of sugar in 48 mini muffins.  The dates give them more sweetness, but there is only one or two pieces per muffin.

They would make a great accompaniment to a soup or salad.  They’d make a good breakfast or snack, too.  They are almost a cross between a biscuit and a muffin.  The muffin base would be good with any dried fruit.
