    Amy–I’m tickled pink you made this recipe. I just saved it to my desktop myself, thinking I’d try it later (that’s my key to really possibly trying a recipe … if it stays in email, it usually gets deleted later). I’m so pleased to hear it’s a winner. I always have carrots and have some dates on hand, too. I haven’t tried teff yet. (I did read a good tip on teff though … that you can use the grains like poppyseeds in muffins and such–to use more teff and get in more protein.) Thanks again … I’ll be trying these for sure now!

    Let me know if you do – I’m sure you’ll try honey or a different sweetener and would love to know how it works.

    I have enjoyed your blog so much. This is a very kind post featuring your blog friend. My battle is Candida, and allergies. I try to eat gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free as much as possible. I’ve been searching and working with it for over 20 years but have never had the success and encouragment like I have had these past few months since I’ve been searching blogs. I found Elana’s Pantry, Karina’s (gf goddess), and yours and I thank you for refering me to so many others. These muffins sound wonderful and I was just looking at Teff in the Market a few days ago. I can’t wait to give it a try. Thanks again.

    These sound delicious – thanks so much for sharing the link with me. I’ve already gone through 1/2 my small bag of teff, and I am loving making hot cereal with it every morning. I’m with you though, I don’t think it tastes sour at all. Maybe they meant after it’s fermented to make Injera bread?

    Anyway, I want to make these muffins. I think I should break my no online food orders and just order more teff. :)

    Those sound awesome! Can you tell me how the prices are on the ingredients you use? Like the teff, is it really expensive?
    Thanks for joining in the fun at Cupcake Tuesday!

    Teff – yes, it’s a little pricey compared to whole wheat flour but it’s worth it, at least for me because I have to eat this way. If I didn’t, though, I’d still use it in my baking because it tastes so good.

    I haven’t tried sugar and gluten free cooking yet, but I am quite intrigued and I am going to try a few of your recipes. I’m not going to tell my husband or children (I have 4 boys) and see if they even notice.
    My question is, how do these muffins freeze? Can you freeze gluten and sugar free food just like “normal” food?
    I’m looking forward to trying your recipes!

    @Laura, I wrap the muffins individually in plastic wrap and then put them in a plastic zip-loc freezer bag. You can pop them in the microwave and they’re great.

    Let me know if you have any questions once you get started on your new baking adventure.

I too can relate to your struggles with infertility, what a journey! Keep up your hope, we were told we would never have children. We now have two beautiful girls, God is good! I pray too you will be blessed!
    Thanks again for all your hard work converting these recipes.

    @Rhonda, Thanks, Rhonda. I’m glad you’re enjoying my blog. I tolerate dairy for the most part but enjoy cooking dairy free so you’ll find both types of recipes here.

    Your experience really touched my heart. Two girls – what a blessing.And, my gratitude for your blessing. Hugs to you.

    I tried these the other night, but they were little bricks. I am not very scientific in mixing my flours, so that might be the problem. I used millet also for the first time, and the muffins were bitter. Could that be the millet flour? I will try again soon…. as soon as i choke down this bitter little bricks! lol. Actually they are not that bad. Love your blog. Thanks for the sugar free inspiration!

    @Carly Ackerman, It sounds like something got left out of the mix…I left eggs out of a cake I made yesterday and it was as flat as a pancake. I had to walk back through the recipe and figure out where I went wrong.

    What flour blend did you use?

    Hi, I used white and brown rice, millet and a bit of corn flour (not corn meal!) and teff and tapioca starch…. (I think!) lol… maybe I should actually measure things and write them down…. I could have missed something, but I usually get everything out before hand because I do sometimes forget things! There is no egg in this recipe, I was just wondering what is replacing the egg? I have baked other things that worked out but nothing since using the millet… is it maybe that I need some more lighter textured flour? Thanks so much for your help!!!

    @Carly Ackerman, The recipe links to the flour blend I used for these muffins. The blend you used could definitely be the problem. The flax replaces the egg. I use millet very successfully so I can’t say that’s the problem. With baking, you have to be relatively exact or things can really go wrong.

    That wikipedia article says that Teff contains Gluten. Which, I am sure it doesn’t, as I have purchased Ivory Teff gluten free tortillas…

    Amy, I am having a problem locating the flour blend that uses Teff on your site. Can you tell me where it is? The link that I followed to find the blend doesn’t say anything about Teff.

    Nevermind. ha ha. I need to read the recipe a little closer next time BEFORE I comment. Whoops!

    Thanks for the recipe! They were absolutely delicious, although I must admit I tweaked the recipe a bit to make up for the ingredients I didn’t have. Instead of buttermilk, I used soy milk + greek yogurt. I also didn’t add any sweetener or oil, just pureed the dates into a paste with twice as much applesauce. I didn’t have teff either, so I used wheat germ instead.
    Thanks again!
