Ramadan + dessert= Banana Date Nut muffins
Dates are a superfood you should be consuming throughout the entire year, not just Ramadan!
These muffins are gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, and bursting with flavor. I topped them off with walnuts and Madinah dates (thanks to my beloved Baba) for the perfect combo of sweet and crunchy. Mixing dates in the batter might cause them to sink and thus burn during the baking process.
These muffins are a fun kitchen project to do with your children! Let them get involved early on to develop cooking and baking skills.
