Nature’s Best Mini Muffins

The natural sweetness of dates, dried cherries and raisins eliminates the need for added sugar in these little gems. For a morning energy boost, grab a couple on your way out the door.

20 (2 muffins each)



1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine dates, cherries, raisins and orange juice. Bring to boiling; boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

2. Stir in oil and salt. Transfer fruit mixture to a large bowl. Cool completely, stirring occasionally.

3. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Spray mini-muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. Stir walnuts, beaten eggs and vanilla into cooled fruit mixture in large bowl. Gently stir in flour and baking soda just until moistened. Fill prepared mini-muffin cups three-fourths full.

4. Bake muffins for 10 to 12 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Remove from pans. Cool completely on wire racks.
