Orange Date Muffins

If you’re looking for a recipe for those fresh dates in your freezer, look no further than these Orange Date Muffins! They’re the perfect blend of citrus with a touch of sweetness and absolutely delicious.

We REALLY love muffins. Not only do we eat them for breakfast, a snack, or even dessert, we also love them because they travel well AND you can freeze them to have any time you’re in the mood for a treat. These Orange Date Muffins only take minutes to whip up and they are really healthy. The flavors are so rich, but none of it comes from sugar. They’re naturally sweet thanks to the dates!

This is the perfect muffin to make at this time of year since dates and oranges are both in season. We even bought the walnuts for this recipe at the farmer’s market and they were so fresh, added a nice crunch and dash of protein to the muffins making them the perfect snack.

These healthy Orange Date Muffins are such a win. They’re so fast to make. Seriously, you can be biting into a warm delicious muffins in less than thirty minutes, and not to mention they’ll make your whole kitchen smell absolutely heavenly. What’s not to love? We made a batch of these for our kids and some of their friends and they were gobbled up in minutes!
