Date and Orange Muffins

date and orange muffins
When I was pregnant with my first child I was living in a isolated town in an unfamiliar state. Due to the lack of medical facilities you were advised to leave town at 36 weeks gestation. My husband was not able to join me until 38 weeks. I could have been alone with my great big belly, in my rented accommodation, if I didn’t have an amazing Aunty. Without hesitation she jumped on a plane and joined me. Together we survived an intense heat wave with no air conditioning, and the many guessing games that nearing your due date brings. My daughter was born hours before my Aunties flight home, and we were thrilled that they got to meet each other.
Skip ahead a few years and this same wonderful Aunty again boards a plane to come and help me out at the end of my second pregnancy. We needed someone to look after our daughter so that my husband could be with me for the birth of our baby. My Aunty had only been with us for a couple of days when our little man came roaring into the world, needless to say her help in those early weeks was invaluable and I cried and cried when it came time for her to go.
I could write a thousand stories about this lady, about her kind heart, her generous nature, and her unconditional love. She reminds me so much of my Gran, both of them can only see my good points and love me for the quirky little being that I am. I may not have a Sister, I no longer have my Gran, but I have this Aunty, and she takes on many roles.
My Aunty asked me to make date and orange scones, I am sure this is not entirely what she had in mind but we think they are delicious. I hope you do too.

Date and Orange Muffins

1 1/2 cups of almond meal/flour

12 medjool dates, seeds removed, finely chopped

zest of one orange

juice of one orange

3 eggs

40 grams melted butter or coconut oil (optional)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon bicarb soda (baking soda)

pinch of salt

Preheat your oven to 175 Degrees Celsius or 350 Degrees Fahrenheit.

Grease a 12 hole muffin tin.

In a mixing bowl combine the almond meal / flour and stir through the chopped dates, add the remaining ingredients, mixing to combine as you go. Spoon the mixture evenly into your muffin tin. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and an inserted skewer comes out cleanly. Enjoy!

Could Orange sweet potatoes be used if the white are not available

Yes they can be but I do prefer it with the other variety, however both will work. I hope you like them. Bianca

Hi Bianca, can the orange be substituted as i do get hives with citrus. would it make much difference to final product if it is left out?

Hi there I made the date and orange muffins on the weekend, the recipe with the sweet potato but when I went to make them again tonight the recipe is different and I can’t find the original with sweet potato. Are you able to repost please 🙂

bianca September 26, 2013 - 8:48 am

Hi Trudy, I will pop it up, I was not happy with them hence the change, did you like them? Many thanks, Bianca

Reply
bianca September 26, 2013 - 8:55 am

Hi Trudy, I am a bit unsure about this recipe so I decided just to post it here for you. I am glad you like them! I hope to have some more egg and nut free recipes coming up.
And another egg and nut free recipe that a few of you have requested –
300 grams cooled roasted sweet potato flesh (I use the purple skin / white flesh variety)
1/3 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda or baking soda
zest of one orange
1 tablespoon or orange juice
6 medjool dates, seeds removed
2 tablespoons of coconut milk
Preheat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease a muffin tray.
Put the ingredients into your blender or food processor and pulse until combined.
Spoon the mixture into your muffins tins and bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool before eating. Enjoy.
Thank you so much! Bianca

Hi,
I know people are often asking for calorie info on the recipes. If they download an app called my fitness pal it allows you to enter recipes and servings and it will work out your calorie per serve. 🙂 I found the app very useful as I own a Pilates studio and people are often wanting to track their calorie intake when improving their eating habits.

Bec October 5, 2013 - 10:02 pm

Hi!
Just made these and they are kind of crumbly and dry, not fluffy at all….and ideas what I did wrong? I did use half almond meal, half coconut flour, would that make a difference? I added the optional butter too.
Thanks!

Reply
bianca October 7, 2013 - 2:15 pm

Hi Bec, yes, using the coconut flour would make all the difference. If you can try them again with just almond meal I am sure you will have a much better result. I hope this helps. Many thanks, Bianca

Hi Bianca,
I am loving your website, and have got to a point where I have to restrict myself to only cooking 2 of your sweet treats per week as we have no more freezer space! I made these muffins this morning, and I think they would have to be my absolute favourite recipe so far. No need to worry about freezing the leftovers – I think that they’ll all be gone in an hour or two!!
Thanks for sharing your passion for food and healthy, simple living.

Lara October 13, 2013 - 12:23 pm

I just made these today and they were lovely! They were like little moist servings of orange-flavoured date loaf. I made them in the Thermomix. I ground the almonds on speed 10 for 30 seconds (or until fine enough). Set them aside. Then chopped the pitted dates on speed 6 until minced. Then added back the ground almonds plus all the other ingredients and mixed through on sp 4 until combined. Then baked as usual. Thank you for the recipe!

Bianca, I made these yesterday but since I didn’t feel like chopping dates, I put them in a dish and added 1 tablespoon of boiling water and then covered the dish to let the dates steam a little. I blended the dates with the orange juice and eggs and then added them to the almond meal, baking soda and zest.
Lovely! I will definitely be making them again and again.

Finally this morning I got around to making these little gems! They were so great. Moist, super healthy, sweet enough, light & fluffy, delicious with butter on top! Someone described them as orange flavoured date loaf, I agree. So great. We have eaten at least half of them already… breakfast, lunch and who knows, they may get eaten at dinner time too! My 6 & 4 yo loved them too. Thank you so much!

No problems, here it is:
Preheat oven to 175c and grease a 12-hole muffin tin, or put silicon cupcake moulds onto a tray.
Add almonds to bowl and grind for 10sec/speed 9. Set aside.
Add dates to bowl and chop 5sec/speed 5,
Add orange peel to bowl and chop 5sec/speed 6.
Add remaining ingredients to bowl, including reserved almond meal and mix for 10sec/speed 4.
Divide the mixture among your muffin tin or cupcake moulds. Bake for 20 mins, or until golden and a skewer inserted comes out clean.

But according to the 7yr old, the consistency is great… But he forgot to tell me that he doesnt like the orange flavour… *facepalm*

Hi Bianca, I would love to bake your muffins, but am wondering if you could suggest an egg substitute? My son has an egg allergy.
Thanks

Reply
Wendy Woo April 30, 2014 - 8:14 am

This is what I use in place of eggs:-Soak 1 or 2 tablespoons of flax seed ( golden linseed) in a small amount of juice ( approx. 1 tablespoon, maybe use the orange juice in the recipe), for 15 to 20 minutes, until it looks sort of “fluffy”, and has swollen up to absorb the liquid, then add to recipe. You can grind up your flax seed and keep it in the fridge for a few weeks, if you don’t want a seedy texture. Sorry for vague quantities!

I have only just started with this type of cooking and it does take a little getting used to the slight flavour differences when cooking without white sugar, flour etc. I like it. You feel so much fuller and know that the food is giving back to your body rather than damaging it! I love exploring the different nut butters & gluten free flour options. Mejool dates have so many uses too. Thanks for sharing your recipes with us. They are by far the tastiest of this type of cooking I’ve come across. 🙂

These are very yummy!
Just thought I’d share with you that I made these this week without the almond meal & used 1/2 spelt flour & 1/2 buckwheat flour instead.
Turned out great still. Very different to the almond meal version but still super yummy! I may have also added a bit more of the orange juice…

Hi Bianca, just to let you know that I baked these last week and they were incredibly good and enjoyed by everyone at home here in California! I’m baking them again soon for my in-laws visiting from Australia ;-0 Thanks! X

I had a sad looking orange in the fruit bowl and had the urge to bake something using it.. I consulted google and was going to make an orange cake in my thermomix but the amount of refined sugar was waaaaayyyy to much (even though it was easy to make, just throw everything in).. I thought hmmmmm, I will have to check out Bianca’s recipes, she will surely have something healthier and here it is!! Yes I had to cut the dates, zest and juice the orange, melt the butter etc BUT oh my gosh it was delicious!!!!! Thank you again, I have made so many of your recipes and not been disappointed with one!! Big kisses xxxx
