Made these tonight, I can say, if you plan to make 12 muffins as the recipe states, be prepared for very small muffins. Once I saw the amount of batter, I knew I should only make 6 to get decent size ones. I did sub the almond butter for greek yogurt and added only two teaspoons of buckwheat honey. They are tasty but once out of the oven they flattened out.
I always make lots of different healthy muffins for my toddler, and I found this recipe. It is fantastic! Moist and delicious, with great texture. Definitely will be making these again. I can feel good feeding these to my little one since they have protein, and aren’t filled with flour and sugar like a typical muffin (which are more like cake.) Thank you!
I’m so glad they were a hit! Still one of my favorites too! 🙂
What can I substitute for almond butter as I am allergic to it. Thanks for answering my question, love your recipes.
