"Substituted with almond flour, coconut oil, sunflower seeds and turbinado sugar. Added a streusel topping before popping in the oven. Great little muffin recipe with satisfactory texture and flavor. Super easy, quick to throw together and highly versatile."

"Super simple to make and so moist! If you love banana bread, you will love these too. I added a simple powdered sugar glaze to the top and it was fantastic!"

"These muffins had a fluffy cake like texture and tasted great with chopped chocolate instead of walnuts. I also added 1/4 cup maple syrup. They are perfect for picky children!"
