Date Oatmeal Muffins

After such an abundance of sugar and chocolate we thought it was time to bake something a wee bit healthier! These muffins were the perfect recipe to play with. They bake up surprisingly light and moist thanks to soaking the oats and have just a hint of sweetness.

1 cup brown sugar
¾ cup oil
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup Partially Sifted Flour

Mix together the oats and buttermilk and let sit for an hour. Beat eggs until they’re frothy then beat in sugar and oil. Mix together flours, baking soda, powder and salt. Mix together egg mixture, dry ingredients and oat mixture just until combined. Fold in dates. Pour batter into lined muffin tins and bake for 20 minutes at 350°F.
