Red dates and Goji berries Muffin 红枣枸杞玛芬

This healthy 养生  muffin idea came from my hubby 's favourite red dates and goji berries tea drink that he is drinking almost everyday, and also the sunflower seeds that he likes to add with oats for morning breakfast.

As to incorporate the red dates and goji berries in this muffin, i cook them till soft and blend it.

This time i tried baking with only parchment paper , simply cut the paper in square  5"x5'", then push them into muffin holes.

No artificial colouring but just natural colours from the red dates and goji berries.

I didn't want to add too much of baking powder, so these muffins didn't rise that much. Nevertheless, the texture is soft and moist, especially when kept it till the next day. I especially love the crunch when bite the pumpkin seeds.
