"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."

"Excellent muffin recipe! Added 1/4 cup of chocolate chips to batter and then sprinkled the top with some extra nuts before baking. I also filled my muffin cups fuller than the recipe said since I like larger muffins. Turned out terrific! Excellent flavor and so moist!"

"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! : )"
