I replaced butter with heart-healthy olive oil. As per WebMD, olive oil is a healthy fat and an excellent source of beneficial plant nutrients called phytochemicals that may help fight cancer and heart disease.

In addition, WebMD says if you replace saturated and trans fats with unsaturated fats such as olive oil, you may lower your chance of getting a stroke by more than 40%.

I used honey instead of maple syrup, and didn’t have almond flour, but had hazlenut flour so used that. I used frozen berries , but mixed them in with the dry ingredients and they didn’t bleed at all. I’m so amazed these muffins rise really well and turned out nice and toasty colored. They are awesome! Next time I will add cinnamon for more flavour.


yes Patsy, they will freeze well in an airtight container up to 2 months. I would reheat them before serving in a microwave for about 15-20 seconds once they have defrosted.


Hi. Will these muffins freeze successfully please?


If you use frozen berries, Mary, they will not hold their shape and become mushy. However, the recipe will still work except the texture will slightly change
