After reading the reviews I decided to make a few changes when I made them. I wanted them to be moist so used 2 regular eggs. I did not have the dates so I shredded some carrots ,used 1/2 cup . To make a little more healthy I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 reg. flour. Also used 1 cup skim milk, and 1/2 cup apllesauce instead of the melted butter. Added 1/4 cup pecans & 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon for extra flavor. The batter was a little thin so added an extra 1/3 cup oatmeal. it's not cold anymore so don't make oatmeal in the morning and this recipe is a good way to get oatmeal into your diet. This recipe turned out good and moist almost like a carrot cake muffin. Will try with dates next time.

They are bland. They were nice and moist (I used 2 full eggs) though. Next time I try them I'll try increasing applesauce and will add raisins, chocolate chips or dried cranberries in addition to the dates.

I made this recipe as a gift for a health concious neighbor. I took them over while her parents, as well as her daughter, son-in-law, and 3 very young grand-daughters were visiting. All 4 generations loved it! Personally, I intend to add more brown sugar when I make it for my family, we have quite a sweet tooth! Also, the recipe yielded a few more muffins that stated, which is always a good thing!

Dates were left out of the ingredient list on this recipe! I added 3/4 cups and it turned out great.

Very tasty and moist! However, they stuck to the muffin papers. I think this is a result of omitting the egg yolks, as I've had this issue with some low-fat muffin recipes before. Next time I will definitely leave in either one or both egg yolks. That's the only reason it did not rate 5 stars.

I made these to give to friends, but happily had enough to keep a few. After reading other reviews, I made a few adjustments. I used 2 whole eggs, increased the applesauce to 1/3 of a cup, used 1/4 cup canola oil instead of butter. increased the dates to 3/4 cup and added 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Delicious! Not overly sweet, but flavorful with good texture.

Use fresh dates. Muffins taste best when warm and dates are gooey.
