Oat and Date Muffins

Oat and Date Muffins
Life is officially hectic round here at the moment. I'm busy getting ready to go back to work in 2 weeks time. There has been lots of batch cooking for the freezer, buying of new work clothes, catching up with new planning legislation (joy!) and desperately trying to finish the utility room  - nearly there now.

I made these muffins to pop into the freezer so I can pull one out every morning and take it to work for a healthy (ish) mid morning snack - I'm determined to stay away from the cakes that always seem to make their way into the office.
