“From TOH muffin booklet. Submitted by Judy C. I am saving this recipe for the fall season as I just think it will go great with that season. I love dates and these just seem really simple to throw together. It states these muffins can be frozen up to 3 months too. Another tip offered is to spray your paper liners with non-stick spray and then the liners peel off very easily without leaving crumbs behind. Hmmmm.”
