Do u have a cook book? Love your recipes.
I don’t but we will have a PDF version sometime this year🤗
I hope we will eventually be able to make a real cookbook 👍
Are these lemon poppy seed muffins really 1300 calories each muffin? That’s what it said when I went to print the recipe.
Well, sorry about that, I’m not seeing that calorie count again. Do you have a calories count for these muffins?
Based on a quick search of the calorie containing ingredients divided by 12 (the yield), each muffin with frosting should be about 150 calories. I am a dietitian so my process is right but there is wiggle room with the data I pulled…
The lemon poppyseed muffins are delicious, we eat them without frosting and are my Grandchildren’s favorite muffin! Thank you Jill-
I make many of your recipes weekly ❤️
Can I do this without apple sauce or any substitute? Thanks
I have heard that you can use mashed banana as a substitute for apple sauce but I haven’t tried it in this recipe.
Can we change the poppy seeds for other seeds or nothing in the cupcakes?
Thank you very much.
Yes, it will work without them =)
How many days will the muffins last before they start to dry up? What is the best way to preserve them? Refrigerator or freeze?
Hello Mary, i usually keep them in the fridge i a tupperware and they will last over a week. Haven’t tested anything longer, they get eaten up so quick =)
I notice many of your recipes use almond meal or flour. My daughter is allergic to almonds & cashew; is there an alternative to use? Can’t wait to try your recipes.
You could use oat flour but the end result might be a little more dry.
Do you need to soak the cashews before creating the frosting?
If you have a powerful blender, then soaking is not necessary but if you are using a regular blender soaking for a couple hours will help it be more smooth.
Can I use almond flour rather than almond meal?
