Medjool dates are a popular sweet ingredient in Israeli dishes and often take the place of sugar in dessert recipes. This delicious ingredient grown in the Holy Land is the perfect addition to sweeten mini muffins!
1 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
8 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup date syrup
1 cup Medjool dates, pitted and chopped*
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup applesauce
1/2 cup chocolate chips or chunks (optional)
Preheat oven to 350° F. Line mini muffin pan with paper liners.
Mix all ingredients together gently until just incorporated.
Use a small cookie scoop or soup spoon to fill liners halfway.
Bake 15 minutes, or until tops spring back when lightly pressed.
Transfer to cooling rack, and when completely cool store in a sealed container for several days.
(*Tip: If you spray your chopping knife with non-stick spray, it makes chopping sticky dates easier.)
