 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/4   c            Whole wheat flour
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/2   ts           Baking soda
    2       ts           Baking powder
      1/2   c            Wheat germ or bran
      1/2   c            Chopped dates
      1/2   c            Chopped nuts (walnuts)
    2       tb           Oil
    3       tb           Molasses
    1       c            Apple juice
    1       t            Lemon zest
      1/4   ts           Allspice
 
   Mix flour and leavenings in a large bowl. Stir in bran
   or germ, dates, and nuts. Mix remaining ingredients in
   another bowl until smooth; add to flour mixture. Stir
   just to combine. Drop into muffin cups (makes 12 small
   ones, less more satisfying larger ones). Sprinkle
   rolled Oats on top to look pretty. Bake at 375 degrees
   for 15-20 minutes.
   
   Non-vegan slightly higher-fat alternative: substitute
   buttermilk and and egg for the apple juice.
