Method

2. Line or grease the muffins or cupcake mould with oil or butter.

3. Add 1 tablespoon flour with chopped walnuts. Mix well to avoid sinking at the bottom. Keep aside.

4. Grind the almond into fine powder.

5. Soak the pitted dates in hot milk for 2 hours.

6. After 2 hours blend the dates into smooth paste. Use the milk of soaked dates for easy blending.

7. Add crumbled cottage cheese or paneer in the blender with date paste. Blend again to make smooth.

8. Sieve whole wheat flour, oats powder, baking powder and baking soda. Mix ground almond with the flour.

12. Pour the batter into lined or greased muffin moulds. Fill up to 3/4 .

13. Tap the moulds gently to release the air bubbles and sprinkle finely chopped walnuts over all the muffins.

14. Bake in preheated oven at 180° for 20 – 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Insert a toothpick in the middle of a muffin to check.

15. Let the muffins cool down before serving.
Enjoy the healthy and delicious muffins. Happy baking!

Notes
1. You can use refined flour or any flour instead of whole wheat flour and oats.
2. I like mildly sweet so I have used around 35 – 40 dates. If you like your muffins more sweet add 45 dates.
3. You can add any dry fruits in the batter.
4. Mashed banana or grated apple can be added in the batter.
