  1. I have made this recipe three times and they disappear fast. The ingredients are delicious. Easy to make. Double the recipe because you can freeze them.

  2. This is somewhat similar to hubby’s favorite hummingbird. Just finished one freshly baked. So tempted to eat them all at once! Unbelievably delicious. Now to hide them from hubby…

    1. Hi Don,
      Thanks for the question. We aren’t sure the texture would be the same with this substitution, as we have only made the muffins using sugar. If you try this, let us know how they turn out!

  3. I love these muffins, they are so yummy! Do you have a nutrition breakdown for them? I’m particularly interested in the protein and fibre content.

    PS, I also enjoy the other recipes on your page that I have tried. 🙂

    1. Hi Jennysbee!
      Thanks for your comments.
      Unfortunately we do not provide nutritional data for our recipes. We are sorry.
      However, we are SO happy you loved the muffins!!
      Have a great day and please stay in touch 🙂
