"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."

"These were okay, but nothing outstanding. I wanted to try the recipe, since it was so easy. I will not make them again, though."

"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!"

"Very easy, and doubles well. Love the texture and flavor. I like a touch more cinnamon, and I used pecans. Delicious."

"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!"
