  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ cup pitted and chopped dates

  • 1 cup buttermilk, at room temperature

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease or line 10 cups of a muffin tin.

  2. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl. Add dates, separating the pieces as you drop them into the flour mixture. Mix to coat.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the largest muffin comes out clean, about 15 minutes.
