Sesame-Date Muffins

I like making muffins -- I also like eating muffins. But I've always wondered if I'm really just eating cake for breakfast.
This muffin recipe will take away some of the guilt. They're low in fat and healthy, too, with lots of fiber. They are a favorite for Christmas brunch.

1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. wheat germ
1/4 c. sesame seeds, roasted
2 t. baking soda
1 c. nonfat buttermilk
1 egg, beaten
3 T. margarine, melted
2 T. molasses
1/4 chopped dates
Vegetable cooking spray or baking cup liners

1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; make a well in center of mixture.

2. Combine buttermilk, egg, margarine, and molasses; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.

3. Fold in dates.

4. Spoon batter into muffins pans that have been coated with cooking spray, ( or use paper liners) filling three-fourths full.

5. Bake 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

YILED: 1 dozen
