    I’ve been making these muffins for years because everyone loves them! I use 1/2 cup of coconut nectar instead of the agave. I was wondering if there was another substitution for the sweetener that would have less sugar? If I were to use erythritol and stevia would that make them too dry? Any suggestions? Thanks for this yummy recipe!

      Hi Madeline,
      I love that you are interested in a low sugar “makeover” of this recipe using erythritol and stevia. And you’re right – substituting granular sweeteners for liquid can be a challenge as it can make the finished product dry. My suggestion would be to increase the fat to 4 Tbsp. and use 1/2 cup erythritol + stevia to taste (~20-30 drops). Please let me know how it goes!

      Be Well,
      Kelley

        Thank you Kelley! I finally tried your substitutes for a lower sugar muffin using 4 Tbsp (1/4 c) of coconut oil and 20 drops of SweetLeaf stevia added to wet ingredients and 1/2 cup erythritol (which I powdered in my NutriBullet with the grinder blade first) that I added to the dry ingredients before stirring the wet ingredients into the dry. Also, since I am now on Dr. Gundry’s Plant Paradox program to heal Leaky Gut and autoimmune disease by eliminating lectins, I substituted the pumpkin with 1 cup organic canned sweet potato puree. I also stirred in 1/3 cup of chopped soaked and dried pecans to the combined batter. The new sugar-free sweet potato muffins are fabulous! Now I can’t wait to try some of your other pumpkin recipes substituting the sweet potato puree. Thanks again for all of your healthy recipes!
