Okay. So I have taken into account the temperature and time that was wonky, now for the substitutions and such. As always, you can use white flour instead of whole wheat. You can add walnuts or pecans to the batter or top the muffins for a hit of protein and crunch. Feel free to soak the dates in boiling water with 1 tsp of baking soda, for an hour before draining them and adding them to the wet ingredients instead of the dry. This will break down the dates making them an integrated part of the batter, not a chunk like raisins. You can also add raisins, chocolate chips or some other little tasty tidbit as well.
Even though these came out burnt, I loved the way that the light was hitting them as I made my coffee. So I took photos anyway. It’s okay to get messy when cooking. You can make mistakes, that is how new recipes come about.
This meal was so much fun. Granny and the husband had a grand and gourmet meal. Granny had a blast helping me set up for the photos that we took. I really enjoyed showing her what I do, not just telling her all about it. Try gourmet-ing up your favourite go to meals. Tell me how it goes.
But here is the Crock Pot version. Fantastic if you have no time and little in the way of ingredients. You can also substitute pork chops for chicken in this recipe and use all milk instead of water and milk.
