We all know what bran muffins are good for… and if you do not, just look at the color, and you will figure it out. The thing you need to watch in bran muffins is the sugar content. This recipe uses the sweetness from dates, so you get the sweetness you would from sugar AND the fiber and nutrients from the dates. If this doesn’t make you go, I don’t know what will!
