Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Pour water into a small, microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1.5 minutes. Carefully add dates to water then set aside and let soften for 10 minutes.
Thoroughly drain the water and discard (there is no need to squeeze or pat the dates dry) then add dates and remaining ingredients, except for the chocolate chips/nibs, to a high powered blender or food processor.
Blend for 30-45 seconds, scrape down the sides, then blend for another 30 seconds-1 minute or until the batter is completely smooth.
Using a ¼ cup cookie or muffin scoop, divide the mixture between 12 muffin cups lined with silicone or paper liners.
Sprinkle the tops of each muffin with a few chocolate chips/nibs then bake on the middle rack for 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Let cool completely and store in an air tight container.
