To prevent the muffins from sticking to the pan, use parchment-paper baking tins and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. The muffin is ready when a toothpick comes out clean.

Puréed dates: Cover with boiling or very hot water 100 g (about ½ cup) of dates. Let stand for a few minutes, drain, and set the liquid aside. Purée with a hand blender. Add leftover liquid if necessary. The purée should remain relatively thick, but smooth.
