      These muffins are very good! Happy to find on recipe that uses no honey or maple syrup! I did add a couple extra dates and some cinnamon on my second batch. They are in the over right now so too early to say if it makes any difference. Great treat!

      Is there anything you can substitute for the medjool dates?
