  1. I just made these this morning!! My dad, who is probably the biggest health food critic on the planet, asked to try one. He said they were absolutely delicious! I gotta go get more coconut flour and honey, because I have a feeling these muffins are gonna be disappearing quickly. 😋

  2. Made these this morning. Ended up with nine muffins because I was a bit generous when filling the muffin cups.

    They are so good and cooked perfectly in 22 minutes on my oven. Will be making more and maybe try substituting pureed pumpkin for bananas. Likely will have to increase the honey for that one.

  3. I just made them and they’re so yummy 😋 but I am not sure why they were rest in 10 minutes! And they burned a little on top? And so lucky I checked them when I smelled bit of burn.
    Thank you so much Rebecca 🥰

    1. Hi Freda
      I’m so glad you saved them and they didn’t burn! I would say it’s just the subtle differences between our ovens that has affected the cooking time.

  4. Yummiest muffins – I made mini ones and that yield was 24. Everyone I give one to comments on how delicious they are. Thank you Rebecca for a simple, delicious recipe that everyone likes.

  5. These sound delicious- I will definitely be trying them! I know it says yields 10 but how many are allowed per serving for phase 1 semi restricted?
