  1. Great recipe, but it has a whole cup of maple syrup. I’ve been making muffins with no sugar recently and using orange juice. It was developed for diabetics. However, it doesn’t use gluten-free flours. I used 1 cup of regular flour, 1/2 cup barley flour, and 1/4/ cup soy flour. I also add blueberries.

    1. Rista,Sorry, I was out on my children’s book tour and just swamped. Ya, you are right. The sugar can be a bit much at times. Your idea of replacing with fruit juice is terrific. You should submit recipes and I can share and better yet submit for a monthly contest! Best, Tina
