It usually happens around 3:00 p.m. You’re convinced that unless you drink another cup of coffee, you’ll fall asleep in the carpool lane. Don’t fall into that trap! Pack yourself a healthy snack filled with whole grains, protein, vitamins, and minerals that will feed your cells the right nutrients for a real, long-lasting energy boost. These muffins are moist, delicately sweet, and have a nice texture due to the crunch from the almonds. They will be a delightful treat as a mid-morning snack or the perfect companion to your afternoon tea. The whole grains give you the perfect carb intake for a quick energy boost.


Main ingredients

  • 1/2 cup dark amber maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon Gefen Vanilla Extract

  • 1/2 cup chopped pitted dates

  • 1/2 cup chopped unsalted roasted almonds


For the Muffins


If the coconut oil is solid, heat it in a small saucepan until just melted but still cool. Preheat oven to 350° F.


In a bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt.


In a second bowl, mix the coconut oil, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla.


Combine dry ingredients with wet.


Fold the dates and half of the chopped almonds into the batter.


Line a muffin pan with paper liners, and using an ice cream scoop, fill them three-quarters full.


Sprinkle tops of muffins with rest of the almonds.


Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.


Store in an airtight container for up to 3 to 4 days.
