These healthy muffins are made wth almond meal instead of nutrient lacking bleached flour. I also love to add extra superfoods like chia and flax seeds! These healthy muffins are nutrient packed and the perfect snack for any time.
No-Sugar-Added Healthy Muffins
Dates are naturally sweet and Medjool dates are even sweeter! They’re also packed with
vitamins and minerals so I like to use them as much as I can instead of refined sugar.
I also like to use figs but you can skip that if you want.
Using really ripe bananas also adds to the sweetness of these healthy muffins.
I also like to use cream cheese in these muffins. It gives them a more moist and creamy consistency that is just awesome in a muffin.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease your muffins tin or put muffin liners.
In a medium bowl, combine the wheat germ, ground flax seeds, chis seeds, oats, whole wheat flour, almond meal, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.
After you datesr finish soaking, blend them together with your figs in a food processor until it forms a paste that has little to no large clumps. Set aside.
In a large bowl, use a hand mixer to combine cream cheese and coconut oil.
Add eggs in one at a time, mixing together fully after each egg.
Next, add the bananas, vanilla. Combine fully. Then add your date and fig mixture.
Add in your dry ingredients 1/3 part at a time, mixing together with a spatula. Or, if you want to break up your oatmeal a bit more, you can use the hand mixer.
Fill muffin trays 3/4 of the way full, leaving room so they rise. Bake for 18-20 minutes. At the 15 minute mark, test the muffuns with a toothpick, making sure it comes out clean.
