Are you looking for a mouthwatering dates recipe, then you can try these date muffins with walnuts.
Although dates in general are very sweet but they are not bad for you as you may think —on the contrary. Dates can help balance blood sugar levels because they have a low glycemic impact. This fruit also contains different types of antioxidants, which help protect the body’s cells, depending on the variety and whether they are fresh or dried. They are high in magnesium, which may help reduce blood pressure, and contain a B vitamin that may help boost memory and learning. You may be surprised to find a wide range of recipes featuring dates, both fresh and dried.
These tender, delicious date muffins are made with a hint of orange extract, but you can also use vanilla extract instead to your preference. But whether you use orange or vanilla, these muffins are a delightful way to start the day, or a perfect treat to enjoy with tea or coffee.
