Red face Bran Muffin Recipe Needed

Does anyone have a good recipe for Bran Muffins? Also, I have some dates that I need to use before they expire.
Thanks for any suggestions on this.

Best Bran Muffins ( from Fiber & Bran Better Health Cookbook )

Yield: 12 muffins

1 1/2 cups wheat bran cereal
1 cup milk
1 egg
1/3 cup soft shortening
1 1/2 cups sifted flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine the bran cereal and milk in a mixing bowl. Let stand 2 minutes, or until most of the moisture is absorbed.
Add the egg and shortening. Beat until well blended.
Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Add dry ingredients to the cereal mixture and stir just until all are moistened.
Spoon the batter into oiled muffin cps (3/4 full) and bake 25 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve hot.

Date Delights (from same cookbook)

1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup honey
2 cups chopped dates
2 cups granola
2 cups finely chopped nuts or grated unsweetened coconut for coating

Melt the butter in saucepan over low heat.
Add honey & dates and cook, stirring constantly, until the dates are very soft.
Remove from heat and stir in the granola.
Spread the chopped nuts or coconut on waxed paper.
When the mixture is cool enough to handle, shape into small balls and roll them in the coating.
Store in refrigerator, between sheets of waxed paper.

Smile Bran Mufffins

Thanks Kind2. The recipe i ended up using is very similar to your muffin recipe, but
uses whole wheat flour instead of white flour. I didn't want to use any white flour
at all. I found it on the TV Food Network site. The one suggested uses figs instead
of dates so I just substituted. I already had the unsulfured molasses and other ingredients.
They turned out well and really taste good.
Thanks for your help tho, I do appreciate it.
