date and walnut muffins …

This recipe came to my attention via Facebook on the 4 Ingredients page. The recipe is from the latest 4 ingredients book, ‘Chocolate, Cakes & Cute Things’.

13 ounces/370 grams pitted dates
1 cup self raising flour (gluten free if needed)
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
2 teaspoons instant coffee or one cup of black coffee

1) In a small bowl, stir together the coffee and 1 cup of boiling water.

2) Add the dates to the bowl and let soak for at least 2 hours.

3) Preheat the oven to 350F/180C.
4) Line 12 cups of a muffin tin with paper liners.

5) Stir the flour and walnuts into the date mixture. I used gluten free flour. And I chopped the coffee-soaked dates into smaller pieces.

6) Divide the batter amongst the muffin cups.

7) Bake until a wooden skewer inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

As with most 4 Ingredient recipes these muffins were easy to make. Healthy. Tasty. Perfect for breakfast, morning or afternoon tea. Ideal for lunch boxes.
