DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In a food processor, combine dates, walnuts, and cashews and blend until a butter-like consistency has formed
  3. In a large bowl, add all remaining ingredients and blend until thoroughly mixed. Add nut+date mixture, and mix until everything is evenly
  4. Line muffin tins with cupcake liners, or spray with coconut oil.
  5. Cook for about 30-40 minutes, depending on your oven. Mine always seems to take about 10 minutes longer than normal. Test with a toothpick, and when it comes out clean, remove muffins
