“From the NZ Herald website. They sound nice and I can't wait to try them. "Studded with nuts, oats, berries and dates, and drizzled with a little maple or agave syrup, these wholesome muffins make for a delicious breakfast on the run or a nourishing morning snack. Enjoy them fresh from the oven with a cup of tea, bake a batch on the weekend in readiness for the week's school lunchboxes or whip them up the night before a busy day." The recipe says it makes 6 muffins, but I would suggest making 12 smaller ones and probably not cooking them for quite so long. Check them after 25 minutes for doneness and if necessary cook a little longer.”
