    I was curious about why you don’t recommend keto long term despite health benefits? I’ve bee on it for 8 months with cheats over holidays but would really like to eat your healing foods diet. Unfortunately I’m now scared of carbs and the body’s response to even fruits. I’m not diabetic but just trying to prevent disease. I would like to make things like these muffins but I’m afraid of the insulin spike from coconut sugar and honey etc. I’m so tired of researching food (it’s become almost unhealthy stress and obsession) but do want to not go back to being bloated, fatigued, having acne, or causing my body harm. There’s so much info and some say no fruit, some occasional fruit, some no grains at all, some sprouted grains. I want food freedom like I had before I knew better :(

    Is the arrowroot starch necessary, & is there a common substitute for it? Also, I have powdered Stevia, and granulated xylitol, could either be used instead of the honey/liquid stevia? if so, would extra liquids i.e. egg, oil, vinegar be needed?

  3. Maree says:

    These look delicious. However many people will be put off by the expensive ingredients.

  4. Elizabeth Kaplan says:

    I am tree nut allergic. Could these be made with coconut flour?

  5. Jane says:

    Is the stevia necessary, or could I just use vanilla extract? Thanks!

  6. Maria says:

    Can i use organic sugar..n..gluten free flour..

  7. Dianne Tudor says:

    Do you have the nutritional information on these. I need to calculate the Weight Watchers Smart Points for these muffins. I really want to make and eat them but need that info. Thanks!

  8. Tara says:

    Xylitol is horrible for you. You must keep away from pets as it will kill them. Coconut sugar is alkaline and doesn’t spike insulin.

  9. Val says:

    these look great, but my liquid stevia did not come with a dropper. Could you tell me how many drops a dropper holds. I tried to search the internet but found no answer. Looking forward to making these.

  10. Penny says:

    Nice recipe. Thanks for the nutrition list, Jenni. Very helpful. A dropper is a scant teaspoon, which could be way too much Stevia. Too much is bitter and at best tastes strongly of licorice. This recipe calls for honey, sugar and stevia. Pick one. It won’t hurt the recipe to leave out the other two. After all, we’re getting used to a smaller satisfaction level of sweetness.

  11. Denise says:

    Is it true that honey becomes toxic when heated? Every article I’ve read says that raw honey should never be heated. I’m so confused.
