½ tsp baking soda
1½ tsp baking powder

 Muffin

Directions
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C
Thoroughly grease and flour/line a muffin pan.
Combine the flour, dates, walnuts, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Beat the eggs in a separate bowl and then add the jaggery/sugar, yogurt, honey, vanilla, lemon juice and zest to the eggs. Stir in the milk.
Pour oil gradually into the mixture and stir it in. Repeat until it is all incorporated.
Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ones and mix gently.
It is important not to over mix the batter, or the muffins will become hard.
Gently pour the batter into the prepared muffin pan and bake immediately.
Bake at 180 C for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Let cool in pan on rack for 5 minutes; transfer to rack and let cool.

Note: Lemon can be replaced by cinnamon powder and grated carrots would definitely be a welcome addition to the batter.
