This is my go-to breakfast muffin. You won't find flour in this recipe and you won't miss it. Feel free to try a different fruit other than banana. I've had great results with grated carrot or apple and coconut.

8 Pitted Dates

2 cups Rolled Oats

1/4 cup Maple Syrup

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp ground Cinnamon

1 tsp Baking Soda

2 Eggs

1/2 cup Olive Oil

1 Banana
