    Thank you – I’m glad you like the recipes! I do not have the nutritional analysis for all of the recipes, but here is the information for the Creamy Cruciferous Risotto. I wil be sure to include it in future recipes if I have had them analyzed. Thanks, Katherine

    Hello Susan,
    i’ve made these a few times now and i love them (maybe a bit too much ;-)I was just wondering about one thing – when I bake them, they rise and look like regular muffins, but eventually they kind of deflate and end up not having that typical muffin top that most people love :-) any advice on what I may be doing wrong?

    Thank you!

    Hi Jitka,
    I’m glad you like the muffins… I know what you mean about them deflating and I’m not really sure what to do about it :( I thinking using “Egg Replacer Powder” might make them more airy. I’d use the equivalent for 2 eggs in the recipe and see what happens. I’ll try to make them again using the Egg Replacer once I get some free time. Thanks! -Katherine

    I haven’t tried this recepie yet but I will tonight, and when doing muffins try not to mix the wet mixture with the dry mixture too well, it should always be clumpy and still “dry”. That should lift the muffins up. I only know this because I used to be baker!

    Hope it works!

    We had these while on vacation at Elm Cottage B&B in Searsport, ME last month, and I’ve made them twice since returning home! They’re indeed moist and delicious, and I have not experienced the “deflating” problem, despite making no adjustments for baking them at our high (5500′) altitude.

    Organic apples have been cost prohibitive here lately, so I substituted an organic pear. (Yum!) I also used half agave nectar/half sucanat, which I we thought added even more flavor. And in an effort to preserve my walnut stash for another recipe, I combined coarsely chopped pecans and walnuts for the topping. Delicious! We adore muffins, and this is a new favorite!

    Hi Katherine!

    I would try mixing flax with some water and letting it gel up a bit like egg- then add?
    Just a thought. Jill

    These sound delicious! I’m considering making them for a potluck, but I want them to be smaller and more snack-sized. Would adjustments need to be made to the baking time and temperature if they were baked in the tiny muffin tins?

    Hi Kim,
    I hope you enjoy these! If you use the tiny muffin tins, I would start with 12 minutes at 350 degrees. Then, insert a toothpick in the center to see if they’re cooked through. If not, add 3 minutes at a time.
    Thanks! – Katherine

    Hi Katherine: I would love to try these muffins. Do you think they would freeze OK? My mornings are very short on time. Also, do you have the calorie information for one muffin? Thank you very much.

    Hi Mary,
    Yes, these muffins freeze well. I apologize, I have not had time to calculate the caloric information for them. Sparkpeople has a good tool for it, but I am behind on getting my recipes in. If I get a chance to, I will let you know. Happy New Year!

    Hello – what is the nutritional information for the veggie confetti muffins.

    Hi Katherine,
    I have a nut allergy and was wondering if you have a recommendation for replacing the walnuts? Thanks very much :)

    Hi Ellie,
    The walnuts are just sprinkled on top, so it doesn’t change the flavor much to leave them off. Several times I’ve just been out of walnuts and made the muffins without them and they’re still delicious! If you wanted something crunchy, you coudl always sprinkle whoel flax seeds on top just before baking. Thanks, Katherine

    Just checking if the calories for this recipe was calculated yet.

    Has anyone tried a non-wheat substitution for this recipe?

    I used all purpose GF flour and teff flour and they turned out great!

    Hello! I make these muffins in my Montessori toddler community (without the walnuts due to an allergy in one of the children). The children LOVE these muffins and enjoy the work of stirring the thick batter. It’s a terrific way to incorporate veggies and fruits for children who are wary to try them separately. Thanks for sharing this terrific recipe!
