    these are like your orange cranberry muffins right? we made those during the christmas break and they were fa-bu-lous!! might just have found my weekend baking project!

    • Paola says:

      Hi Emma! YES! They’re the same base recipe! So glad you enjoyed those 😉 big kiss and happy baking!

  2. Mary says:

    I have all the ingredients except for psyllium husk. Is there a substitute for this ingredient? Thanks!

    • Paola says:

      Hi Mary! Technically you can sub with coconut flour but the results won’t be the same (psyllium husk really is indispensable for the nice crumb) xo!

    • Paola says:

      Awesome Allyson! Glad you loved them and thanks for reporting back! I think they’re pretty heavenly too if you don’t mind me saying 👼🏿 xo!

    Hi Paola. I just found your website and am already bookmarking all the recipes I want to try. Just checking with the psyllium husks, are they whole husks or ground?

    • Paola says:

      Hi Shehneela! I use the NOW brand linked in the recipe, it’s whole xo! Hope you enjoy the recipes!

    I have just made my 4th batch of these muffins. This is best recipe hands down for a low carb muffin I have ever made. Wonderful flavor with a tender crumb. It’s good without the glaze but so delicious with when you make this final step.

    Paloa, you are a genius. I have tried many keto muffin recipes, searching for one as good as my pre-keto muffins, and had almost given up hope when I found your recipe. These muffins are not just “as good”, they are better! I’ve made them 3 times now and thrown away all my other muffin recipes. Thank you!!!

    Just made these — they are great! I used chia instead of poppy seeds, ground flax instead of xanthan gum, and added 1 tsp lemon extract to further pump up the lemon.

    • Paola says:

      That’s awesome Peter so happy you enjoyed! And thanks so much for reporting back with your subs, always super helpful to others xo!

    These are fantastic! My batter made 7 huge muffins instead of six but I wasn’t disappointed. The glaze was kinda artificial to me but I just didn’t use a ton on my muffins and it was a nice touch. Definitely love these and will continue to make them!

    • Paola says:

      Hi Devyn! So happy you enjoyed them! The ‘artificial’ taste in you glaze is probably a result to the sweetener your using (xylitol has the most sugar taste, at least according to my taste buds). xo and thanks so much for reporting back!

    Just found your site & am impressed so I’m putting this together now. Don’t have poppy seeds though. For next time, Can I sub chia seeds if I increased the liquid somehow?

    • Paola says:

      I Judy! Just skip the poppy seeds. Chia seeds won’t work the same at all as they’ll swell up and mess up your wet-to-dry ratios. xo!
