Vicki's Banana-Walnut Muffins with Dates

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

Adapted slightly from Vicki Chelf's recipe in Vicki's Vegan Kitchen. The original recipe had no salt or spice whatsoever, so I added a pinch of sea salt and a dash of nutmeg in with the dry mixture. I refuse to use the delicious maple syrup we have here for anything other than topping, so I used amber agave and added some sweet diced dates for variety!
