date and walnut muffins

I made these this evening, very yummy (and healthy if you care about such things). Makes 12 Dry stuff: 3oz wholemeal plain flour, 5 1/2 ounces plain flour, 1oz wheargerm (which is a very good source of folic acid apparently - but if you don't have any just substitute with wholemeal flour), 2oz soft brown sugar, 2tsp bicarbonate soda, 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 3ox chopped dates, 2oz chopped walnuts.

Mix together in a bowl and make a well in the centre, like so:

Wet, goopy stuff: 8oz natural yoghurt, 4tbsp sunflower oil, 2tbsp mollases, 1 egg.

Whisk together in a little bowl:

Then pour the goopy mixture into the well in the dry stuff. Mix until just combined. Spoon into muffin cases:

Bake at gas mark 6 for uhh... until they're done. I didn't time it but maybe about 20 mins - you can test by sticking a fork into one - if it comes out clean they're done. Enjoy!
