Um....I am not sure about that. Just to let everyone know, you can use applesauce in place of the yogurt.

Have you tried reducing the honey in this? I was wondering if it would have the right texture if I used 1/4 cup honey, with perhaps a dropper-full of stevia. Thanks!

I'm so glad that you liked them Donny!

Erin: No I haven't tried reducing the honey in this. I am not really that familiar with stevia and other sweeteners like it so I'm not really sure about substituting the stevia for part of the honey. It probably would affect the texture, I'm not positive. Sorry I couldn't help you out with that question!

I dont have any almond flour but i do have cocunut. Whats the difference between them and can i just use all coconut flour?
# Posted By sarah | 2/9/12 3:00 PM
Well almond flour is ground almonds. It is a very crumbly flour but gives a nice texture to these muffins. Coconut flour on the other hand is a very thirsty flour and would need more eggs and the texture would be different.

I would suggest that you use almond flour and coconut flour, just as my recipe calls for, but feel free to experiment and let me know how they turn out if you do.
However if you use all coconut flour you will NOT need 2 1/2 cups! Maybe.....I'm not sure because I've never tried substituting all coconut flour in this recipe before....maybe around 1/2 cup? Probably just until the batter becomes somewhat thick, but not extremely thick. Plus you will probably need to use more eggs....maybe 3 or 4...I'm not sure. Hope this helps! Modify at your own risk! :)

Just so you know. You can also make this in a small pan. I made it in an 11in by 7 and a half inch pan. I baked it at 350 degrees F, for 28 minutes, but it could take a little less or a little longer. Thank you so much for your nice comments! :)

To make it dairy free, I tried this recipe with goat yogurt instead of the regular milk yogurt and instead of butter I used Vegan margarine ... it turned out delicious! Thank you!

Can I substitute coconut palm sugar in any of the recipes? Thank you.
# Posted By Janet | 12/13/12 1:16 PM
Hm...I'm not sure. I have never worked with that.
# Posted By Angie | 12/17/12 5:27 PM
What would you recommend as a non-dairy replacement for the butter? Coconut oil?
# Posted By KJ | 9/13/13 9:33 AM
Coconut oil should work, KJ.

instead of 2 eggs i used 1/2c of egg substitute & used coconut butter instead of reg butter... muffins are delicious!

These are wonderful. Better the next day. Thanks so much for the recipe.

Soo good. Used light sour cream instead of yogurt.

Is they anything you can subsitute the almond flour for? Allergy to nuts!
# Posted By Lucy | 5/22/14 1:00 PM
Hey Lucy,

I really wouldn't substitute anything for the almond flour because it gives the muffins a special texture. Plus if you used a different flour you will probably need more liquid. But you're welcome to try! If you do, let me know how it turns out! :)

This is an outstanding recipe! Do not omit the "topping". It makes the muffin. I've also made the topping once with coconut oil instead of butter. It worked well, but I love the original version. I add extra cinnamon (2 tsps) to my batter as I love a very spiced cake. I also cut the honey in the batter to 1/4 as the topping adds sweetness as well. Excellent recipe! Thank you for sharing!
