    I have made these two times, they are marvelous!
    One suggestion is to use cupcake papers otherwise they stick to pan.
    My 8 year old granddaughter is a very fussy eater and gave these a big thumbs up!

    These are fantastic! I used coconut milk instead of kefir, but followed exact recipe other than that. So good!

    Why do you not post nutritional information with the recipes? Gluten free doe not include low carb in most cases. Bananas make my blood sugar shoot through the roof! It is hared to find both gluten free and low carb. Please consider posting information.

    Heads up! If you don’t keep them in fridge they get mouldy after 2 days. I guess that’s the beauty of no preservatives!

    I see many recipes for almond flour, but I have a food intolerance (possible allergy) to almonds. What is a good substitute for almond flour? Thanks!

    I can’t have the Kefir or eggs, is there substitutes for these? I don’t have chia seeds, but have canned pumpkin

      Dates are a fruit that can be used to sweeten recipes naturally. Check your local health food store or online. You can click on the ingredients in there recipe to purchase the ingredients or find where you may get them. Check out this article on kefir:

    i cannot eat eggs or kefir. I can substitute flaxmeal/water for the eggs. What do you recommend substituting for kefir?

    Can I use coconut flour instead…or garbanzo bean flour. Almond flour is so expensive. Also is it plain Kefir or can I use blueberry?

    • Dr. Josh Axe on

      I prefer plain kefir so it doesn’t have any of the sugar but you can use blueberry. I would use a mix of coconut flour and another if you are going to use coconut flour because it pulls moisture from the mixture and will end up leaving your muffins very dry. If you click on the link, it brings you to the almond flour I personally buy. You can get a 5 pound bag for a great price!

      • Tamara on

        I can’t use almond flour due to allergies, what would you suggest to add with the coconut flour?

      • Dr. Josh Axe on

        You can pair the coconut flour with brown rice flour, garbanzo bean flour, buckwheat flour, cassava flour or tigernut flour. Just remember that the consistency may vary. I hope this helps!

    How many calories per muffin? It is great ingredients but was concerned for calorie intake. I looked could not find the nutritional facts.

    • Dr. Josh Axe on

      I don’t recommend people count calories, instead I tell them to count nutrients! You can read why here:

      If you are still worried, you can put every ingredient that you specifically use in your recipe and get the exact nutrition facts on this site:

  10. Lori on

    If I don’t have Kefir on hand could I use raw milk? Also, shredded coconut be used instead of coconut flakes? Thanks! Looking forward to trying this recipe.

    Is the second step to put the almond flour in the blender or the dates? Not sure I understand since it says put the almonds in the blender but it is calling for almond flour.
