Add a little cream cheese on top like frosting and it's like a little cupcake!!

Has anyone made these with honey? And if so, how much did you use?
Yes you would use a 1/2 cup of honey.
Where it says you can replace the stevia with powdered, is that powdered sugar? And does this recipe still taste good if you leave out the instant coffee?
No you can replace the liquid stevia for the powdered. I don't use powdered sugar. I've not made it without the coffee in it.
I am thinking of making this tomorrow morning. I don't have the banana though. Is there something I can substitute for it instead? If not I am going to have my hubby bring home some bananas tomorrow after work. Other than that I am thinking of adding some protein powder. My daughter doesn't eat meat and I have to get protein in her somehow lol. She will probably love these! Thanks!
Do you think I could substitute quinoa or coconut for the oatmeal? I am grain free...
I'm not sure, maybe try it but reduce amounts so if it doesn't work you won't waste all your ingredients.
This is so helpful! I am new to this and need to help my family make better choices...your site is an answer to prayers for this beginner!
These are amazing!! I've been sugar and flour free since Nov,2011 So glad I found your website!
Eggs aren't considered dairy!
A few weeks ago I began to cut out sugars and most artificial sugars (only use truvia) so I am new to this way of cooking. I love your blog and your recipes so helpful. I'm down 5 pounds and can already drink coffee with only half and half no sweetener!! But I don't know what carob is....What is it and where could I purchase? Thank you!
I found carob chips at Whole Foods Market. Carob is from a Mediterranean tree and the seeds and pod are edible and naturally sweet. They are ground up into carob powder and made into chips.They are a replacement for chocolate chips. Some are unsweetened and some are sweetened. If you can't find them you can just use chocolate chips.
These are so yummy-I made these this morning and they are perfect! Mine came out to be less than 100 calories per muffin, wow!
I just made a batch of these! They are sooooo good! Thank you for the recipe. I will definitely be making them again. Low calorie and healthy!
curious if honey can be used in place of stevia?
Haven't tried it, sure it would but measurements may need to change.
oops, I see it! Sorry!
I'm going to make these definitely! Do you have the calorie count?
If you're using egg it's not dairy-free...
Egg is a Protein, it is not dairy.
