These muffins look wonderful and so do the ingredients although I have issues consuming dairy. Can these muffins be made with substituting the yogurt and whey protein with non-dairy ingredient?
Thank You,

That's a great question. We haven't tried it but think that coconut oil and a dairy free protein powder may work. Let us know if you try it out! 

How can you make this dairy-free? I know I could substitute collagen-based protein powder, add vanilla, use ghee (or coconut oil? or coconut butter/manna?) in lieu of butter. But I'm stuck for yogurt substitution? Almond milk? Coconut based 'yogurt'? And what does the xantham gum do in the recipe - replacements? Sorry... one more substitution question... If you use pumpkin or banana... is it the same amount as the blueberries - 1.5cups. Thanks so much for answering. I LOVE making muffins for snacks. I'm gluten & dairy-free so this recipe looks inviting. Don't think it's in the cookbook - is it??

This recipe is in the Nutrition 4 Weight Loss cookbook and we haven't tried making it dairy free but your alternatives sound promising! Our first thought was coconot oil as a substitute, but perhaps a coconut yogurt would be better. Let us know if you try it and what works! Xantham gum is just for thickening and stablizing the muffins, you don't need to include it. Use the same amount of pumpkin as you would blueberries, or a little more or less to taste. 

what are rolled oats and where do you purchase them? Oatmeal?

Here's an example and you can find these at any co-op and some natural food sections in your local grocer.

On your recipes, is it possible to provide nutritional values?

We'll consider that, thanks for the recommendation! 

I made the muffins with coconut milk -the same amount as the yogurt and water. Muffins turned out great!

Glad to hear it, thanks for sharing! 

We have a nut allergy, what can be used in place of the Almond flour?

You could try coconut flour, we haven't done that specifically but think it would be good. 

Could you use egg replacer? I can't do eggs.

Yes, you can absolutely use an egg replacer. I’ve used chia “eggs” before in baking and that works great. 1 TBSP chia seeds + 2.5 TBSP water soaked for 20 minutes = 1 chia “egg.”


Could you provide suggestions with what could be served with the muffin for a complete breakfast? It would be nice to see that with all recipes! Thanks!

To make this recipe a complete breakfast, just add one ounce of protein. Something like a hard-boiled egg or a breakfast sausage link would do the trick!

I don't have coconut flour. Can I use all almond flour?

Yes, that should be fine!
