  • 1/4 cup Anita’s Organic Ground Flax Meal
  • 1/2 cup Anita’s Organic Rolled Oats
  • 3/4 cup Anita’s Organic Thompson Raisins, scolded (soaked) in hot water for a few minutes & then drained
  • 4 tbsp (57g) Butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Date paste (or ½ cup pureed dates)
  • 2/3 cup Oil
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup Applesauce
  • 1 cup Low fat yogurt, plain & unsweetened


  • Preheat the oven to 475˚F and grease or line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
  • In a medium sized bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add in the seeds, shredded coconut, flax meal, oats, drained raisins and mix.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the butter, date paste, oil and eggs until light and creamy. Add in the applesauce and yogurt and whisk everything together until evenly mixed.
  • Slowly add a cup at a time of the dry mixture to the wet and fold everything together until just combined. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tray.

    Just made the super muffins. Wonderful recipe. It’s the kind of muffin I love with my morning coffee!

    Correction. They were the Power Muffins!

    These muffins are fantastic, so hearty and filling. I measured the 1/2 cup of date paste as 10 to 12 Medjool dates, pitted and pureed in a food processor. Highly recommended!

    Made these Power Muffins and followed the recipe exactly but found them a bit too dry. Other than that they are delicious!! Any ideas for adding more moisture? Made the date paste using my mini-prep food processor which worked perfectly.

    Made these power muffins a few times now, They are great. We have substituted the oil for coconut oil and used cranberries instead of the raisins.The coconut oil gives the muffins a slight coconut taste, make sure the oil is heated a bit to make it easy to blend when mixing the ingredients. Really enjoyed the final product,delicious. Original recipe is great too.
