These muffins are what my husband calls the ultimate in muffins. For the past 3 weeks I have only been baking this poppy seed muffin recipe. We have them with our coffee as second breakfast and as dessert after dinner.






  1. In a small bowl, cover the chopped dates with 230ml water or plant-based milk and let soak for about 30 minutes.
  2. In a big bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.
  3. Place the dates with the soak water, banana, peanut butter, salt, and persimmon into a blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Add this wet mixture to the bowl of dry ingredients, and mix until all the dry ingredients have disappeared.
  5. Add chocolate buttons and mix well.
  6. Spoon the batter into a silicone muffin pan or parchment muffin papers in a metal pan. This recipe makes 15 big muffins.
  7. Heat oven to 350 F (175 C). Bake for 30-35 minutes. The muffins will be done when cracks appear. Let cool in the pan for about 15 minutes before removing.
