those look soooooo good! I love lime and lemon... and the banana coconut muffins I made were sooo good. didn't even have a coconut flavour, but a nice banana flavour and a very nice texture. I'll be making them again sometime.

Can we substitute almond milk? Is there a substitute for the butter? (casein sensitivity)

Yes and yes. I recommend coconut milk for the milk and coconut oil for the butter.

Can I substitute honey for the sugar? If so, how much?

Really good! I added fresh blueberries.

I made the batch a little smaller to fit using my 6 muffin tin in my toaster oven so that I didn't have to heat up the whole kitchen, though after I did this, I realized the recipe could probably be made as is, in a loaf pan that would fit in the toaster oven. I also didn't have any fresh limes or lemons, so I used lemon oil and extra lemon juice instead. I am also avoiding sugar, so I used erythritol, xylitol, and stevia. I also added blueberries and shredded coconut. So here are my adjustments for a 6 muffin batch that turned out great, thank you for the inspiration, though I guess these would be called Lemon Blueberry Coconut Muffins:
-1/3 cup + 1/8 cup coconut flour
-2/3 tsp baking powder
-4 eggs
-1.5 tbsp butter
-1.5tbsp coconut oil
-1.5 tbsp xylitol, 1.5 tbsp erythritol, and 2 packets stevia (NOW brand) - (dissolved all in the melted butter and oil)
-1 tbsp + 1tsp of half and half
-1 tbsp lemon juice
-1/8 tsp lemon oil
-Shredded coconut
Makes 6 muffins

Since I can't have eggs, and have to be gluten free, I'm wondering if there's a liquid substitution that works for all those eggs.

Thanks for giving us the recipe for the Lemon Blueberry Coconut Muffins, Beth, they sound yummy! I think I'll try them, but I'll use sugar instead of the sugar substitutes. Thanks again!

I followed the receipe in the book that came with my flour order. it was missing a few sugar (in the directions) and also it has you putting it into 12 muffin tins. They came out tiny, like hockey pucks:(. I will know better for next time. I did however add the sugar (whether it told me to or not!)

I love this recipe. I substituted with almond milk and made a powdered sugar topping(with almond milk and lemon) to drizzle on top. Also, I cored out a little hole in the middle after cooking and filled with fresh raspberry puree.
