    Blend cereal mixture in blender on medium speed until smooth; set aside. In medium bowl, stir flour, dates, 1/2 cup brown sugar, the baking soda and salt until well mixed. Pour cereal mixture over flour mixture; stir just until moistened (batter will be thick). Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You can make jumbo muffins, similar to the ones you see in the bakery. To make, just grease 6 jumbo muffin cups (3 1/2x2 1/4 inches) with shortening or cooking spray (do not use paper baking cups). Place 2 teaspoons of the topping in each cup before adding batter. Bake as directed.
