   Mix cereal and milk.  Let stand a few minutes until most of the milk is
   absorbed.
   Grease 12 2 1/2-inch muffin cups.  Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
   Sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a medium-sized bowl.  Stir
   to mix well.  Add dates/raisins and nuts; toss to mix.
   Add egg and oil to soaked cereal and beat well with a fork.  Pour into
   flour mixture and stir only until dry ingredients are moistened.  Batter
   will be lumpy.
   Drop batter into prepared pans, filling each cup half to two-thirds full.
   Bake about 30 minutes, or until browned.  Remove from pan and serve hot
   with butter and jelly or preserves.
