Liv’s Orange Date Muffins

Liv's Orange Date Muffins from Eye of a Hunter

Fresh oranges and dates pack this recipe with nutrition and eat them for breakfast. On the other hand, the butter and sugar make these orange date muffins decadent enough to eat as a dessert. Even though Liv has lost her memory, she still enjoys baking her orange date muffins for the crew in Eye of a Hunter.
