Coffeetime Gems

These muffins are great!  My husband commented “You don’t need anything on them but butter!”  We had them with soup yesterday, but they are equally delicious with main dish salads, or, as the name says…for coffee time.   They are a great choice if you have “sweet fatigue”. 
Buy whole pitted dates and cut them up with a scissors if you can, they are much more moist and tasty. This recipe will be on our table more often.
