Carrot date muffins are one of the most amazing muffins I have made so far. My child has a sweet tooth. If I don’t keep a healthy sweet option at home, he will end up eating chocolate or candies. When I was making these carrot and date muffins, I wasn’t really sure about the outcome. The results got awarded when my husband, who does not like to eat sweets, ate two muffins. The icing on the cake was the compliment on the perfect balance of sweetness. And the secret is that I extracted mostly from the dates and carrots and used very little sugar.
