Healthy date muffins are the answer for those who want healthy, sugar-free alternatives. Lately, I keep getting the hint that I should offer more healthy and sugar-free recipes. In doing so, one must “ sugar-free ” must first be defined. I mostly use raw cane sugar because I consider it a cheap and natural alternative to refined sugar. However, some readers would like alternatives that also do not contain raw cane sugar. No sooner said than done, I got right to work making these fine muffins. They are sugar-free and also flour-free. However, to be fair, dates are also full of sugar. However, this one is a bit different because it comes in a total package with lots of fiber, minerals and vitamins. I’d say let’s get right to it.

Actually, I was going to name these muffins “sugar free“. Before that, however, I typed “what sugar-free actually means” into Google and got all sorts of different answers. For some, everything is sugar-free that no refined sugar includes. For others, there should be virtually no sugar at all, and then there are those who have their own definition of “ sugar-free ” and like to use sugar substitutes or sweeteners.

To be honest, I have a bit of a hard time with the term “sugar-free” because there is definitely sugar in dates, coconut blossom sugar, and many other alternatives. This is definitely not the case with erythritol and xylitol, but in return these sugar alternatives have no nutritional value and provide absolutely no minerals, vitamins or phytochemicals. Strictly speaking, they are not sugar either, but sugar alcohols. As you can see, the topic of “sugar-free” is complex, so I’ll just say now that these muffins are “naturally sweetened” but definitely not “sugar-free”.

TIP: I always buy my dates in a 5kg box and store them in the fridge for several weeks. You can buy them individually in the supermarket, but they are usually more expensive. Dates are also a wonderful snack pure and rich in valuable minerals. Here I buy my 5kg box (unpaid advertising).

Please forgive me for being so long on the subject of sugar in this recipe. Let’s get to the real star in this post and that is the healthy muffins. For this we need dates, water and nut puree, which is processed in a blender to a fine paste. Add cocoa, flaxseed meal, baking powder, salt and bourbon vanilla. Now mix the ingredients into a fine batter and pour into muffin tins. I top it with chocolate drops and nutsand off it goes into the oven. After 15-20 minutes of baking time, the little beauties are also ready. Just let them cool and they are ready to be snacked on.

If you’re in the mood for a different muffin variation today, I have the following suggestions for you:

Pair these healthy muffins with a warming hot beverage like a vegan golden milk, hot chocolate or Pumpkin Spice Latte.

The healthy date muffins are:

  • soft
  • chocolaty
  • fudgy
  • Naturally sweetened
