Bran Date & Nut Muffins

Third in a series of bran muffins, today we have Bran Date & Nut muffins. These muffins are intended to be “mini muffins” with the direction to bake them in a gem pan. Gem pans can be configured in a variety of arrangements but they are usually intended to make a dozen or two dozen bite sized muffins. The recipe refers to the dates & nuts having some flour sifted over them. This should help to keep these larger items from sinking to the bottom of the muffin during baking.
