Lemon Date Muffins Healthy Recipe @pinch

We loved the date and lemon flavor combination in these muffins. A tasty muffin that would be good for breakfast or afternoon tea. They are lightly sweet with nice lemon flavor and bits of dried dates in every bite. The lemon glaze adds an extra touch of lemon flavor and sweetness. Yum! These are very tasty and the muffins were a hit with the family. I thank my grandma for this recipe, God bless her. My mom saved this recipe for me along with many others. I hope you enjoy these. I love the texture of these muffins. I have made them with other fruit that has been dried, fresh fruit and nuts as well. I even make them with trail mix once (just chop it up first and dust with flour).
