    • These look like a great morning breakfast to go. I love that there is just a touch of honey in them to sweeten but not too much. And then, of course you drenched them in maple syrup like I totally would have done too haha!

      Made these this morning as I have just started a paleo and gluten free lifestyle and was wanting something a little different for breakfast than eggs…these were wonderful! I didn’t have all ingredients so i subbed slivered almonds for the walnuts, I didn’t have apple sauce which I think would have made a big difference in the flavor..but I used pureed pumpkin. Even with those adjustments it turned out lovely! Thank you for the great treat as these used to be my favorite ‘gluten’ muffins! 🙂

    • These are my new go-to muffin. You can really just sub in whatever you want (fruit, nuts, veggies). I made a batch and they were perfect for a little dessert, or to grab and eat in the car before my 5:30am WOD. Thank, Lexi!

    • These were perfect to make with my leftover carrots. Loved how it was packed with carrots, apples, raisins, and walnuts (I forgot the coconut). I think mine needed to cook a little longer but I let them sit and then stored them in the fridge. When I wanted a snack I would heat it up in the microwave. Delicious, I didn’t think it even needed maple syrup. I need to invest in some of those silicone muffin things. The paper muffin holder I used stuck so I was literally licking it to get all of the muffin off, yes it was that good, don’t judge.

    • Just made these to eat on the go throughout the week, they’re delicious! I added 1/2 tsp of ginger powder, as I love a hint of ginger in baked goods, and it works really well 🙂 I’m sure my toddler too will devour these…
      Thanks for another great recipe Lexi!

    • just made these – WONDERFUL – everything you look for in a muffin, moist, not too sweet, lots of flavor. thank you so much! (just that is is gluten and dairy free makes it a slam dunk!)

    • i am new to your site…found some great looking recipes from you on Pinterest. I have a hubby who has been eating clean and losing weight (60 lbs so far!!) and I’m looking for some new recipes to keep him as well as 2 teenage girls and myself on track. Do you have any nutritional breakdown for calories, protein, etc? I’d love to try some of these out but I know he won’t eat them if he doesn’t know the nutritional facts. What are your best ones to start with for lunchbox items?

    • Just made a batch! Omg delish!!!!!!! I have made a version of these before with zucchini, carrot and pear. I have to go eat a second muffin now.

    • Do these freeze/thaw well? Thinking about making a double batch and freezing some as a quick go-to for days I am not prepared.

      These look AMAZING! What is an alternative for almond flour, I am allergic to almonds so I will need to use another gf option? Thanks, B
