1 1/4 c Whole wheat flour 1/2 ts Salt 1/2 ts Baking soda 2 ts Baking powder 1/2 c Wheat germ or bran 1/2 c Chopped dates 1/2 c Chopped nuts (walnuts) 2 tb Oil 3 tb Molasses 1 c Apple juice 1 ts Lemon zest 1/4 ts Allspice Mix flour and leavenings in a large bowl. Stir in bran or germ, dates, and nuts. Mix remaining ingredients in another bowl until smooth; add to flour mixture. Stir just to combine. Drop into muffin cups (makes 12 small ones, less more satisfying larger ones). Sprinkle rolled Oats on top to look pretty. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Non-vegan slightly higher-fat alternative: substitute buttermilk and and egg for the apple juice. cheerio, Melanie
