  1. thanks for the recipe. I made these muffins this morning and they were very good. I used spelt flour and they turned out very tasty. I think the dates were a great addition.

  2. These were a hit with my family! I softened the sate in some orange juice, and added blueberries and finely grated carrot. Planning to make a double batch to freeze for lunches.

  3. Hi Wendy! I’m making these now. I’m wondering if they are nut free if I used coconut oil. I wanted to take them to school tomorrow. Thanks!
