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…

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.

Hello Jill!
Can we change the poppy seeds for other seeds or nothing in the cupcakes?
Thank you very much.
Loli.

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?

Reply

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.
