Mix cereal and milk. Let stand a few minutes until most of the milk is
absorbed. Grease 12 2 1/2-inch muffin cups. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a medium-sized bowl. Stir to
mix well. Add dates/raisins and nuts; toss to mix. Add egg and oil to
soaked cereal and beat well with a fork. Pour into flour mixture and stir
only until dry ingredients are moistened. Batter will be lumpy. Drop batter
into prepared pans, filling each cup half to two-thirds full. Bake about 30
minutes, or until browned. Remove from pan and serve hot with butter and
jelly or preserves.
