Whole wheat orange muffin

There is more than one reason for me to be watching and reducing my weight. I can’t stop baking though, hence my efforts are towards healthier recipes without sacrificing taste.

I combined two or three recipes that I saw online and came up with this one. I was to add dates and walnuts to these muffins but I forgot. Yet they turned out really good. So, why dates?
