Diabetic Wholemeal Date & Banana Muffins Recipe

This recipe was given to me by a lovely lady who has been making them for over 20 years now and said that they are a favourite in her house. I tried them and have to say they are the best date and banana muffins that I have tasted, diabetic or regular recipe. Do try these for yourself as I know you will love them. They are great to pop in a lunchbox or to serve for afternoon tea. These have just 340kj, 2g fibre and only 0.3g sat fat so if you are following the weight watchers points system that is just 1 point per muffin. Having 2 muffins would not ruin your program and you will love the treat.


2 Cups wholemeal SR flour
3 medium bananas - mashed
20 medium pitted dates - chopped
1/2 teaspoon bi-carb soda
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 egg (can use low cholesterol egg mix)
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons good oil - such as olive or peanut


Preheat oven to 180C.
In a large bowl, mix in flour and bi-carb soda together.
Blend bananas and dates together with electric mixer or kitchen whiz.
Add orange juice, oil, egg and honey to this and stir or mix for a minute or two.
Pour this into the flour and slightly mix through with a wooden spoon until just combined. Do not over mix as this will toughen them.
Pour into small muffin tins or papers and cook for 15 - 18 minutes. Do not leave in any longer as you want them to be moist.
They are suitable to freeze and reheat in low/moderate temp in microwave.
