"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."

"I doubled this recipe to make 6 very large muffins. I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of plain flour. I also used pecans instead of walnuts. I also broke additional pecans to put on top of the muffins while they baked. After they cooled slightly, I made icing and drizzled it on the muffins. My family loved it! So yes I would use this recipe again! : )"
