These were very tasty, although I might try a bit more pumpkin and a bit less orange next time, as the orange flavor was very pronounced. I tossed the dates into the food processor along with everything else just to be lazy, and that worked out just fine. I also used all whole wheat flour and only used the honey without the extra sugar, and they were perfectly sweet. I really don't know why they feel the need to include so much sugar in a recipe in what is supposed to be a healthy magazine, especially with the inclusion of dates to make things even sweeter. Anyway, if you don't need your muffins to taste like cupcakes, I would definitely recommend leaving out the extra sugar, as they are quite good without it.
