"Delicious combination of old fashioned rolled oats and sweet dates. The applesauce makes them extra moist."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

packed brown sugar
chopped pitted dates
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.
Use fresh dates. Muffins taste best when warm and dates are gooey.
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.
a bit dry....my kids did not like these muffins.....although I did....although not very moist.
i increases the chopped dates to 3/4 cup & my muffins came out fine. i froze half & took the rest on vacation. they store well & seemed to taste better the next day or so. thanks sara!
I added the zest of one orange and love the results! If that had been an ingredient in the original recipe I would have given this 5 stars. I was very pleased with the moisture level - it may have been due to my modifications: I used canola oil instead of butter and used one whole egg instead of two egg whites.
