This is a great basic recipe to get the kids started on baking - and decorating.
Dates, nuts and a little pinch of nutmeg is a classic taste combination. This muffin recipe makes the most of these tasty ingredients to create a muffin that's perfect for school and work snacks.
These muffins are cake-ey enough to seem like a real treat but also sneak in some vegetable and fibre goodness. And the very best thing about this recipe is that it can be made well in advance, right through to the batter stage and just popped in the oven when needed.
