Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn.

Batter tasted good. Not aure about final product because it barely made 24. I needed 26. Had to thin out batter a lot.

Jenna - how did they come out? Were you making mini-muffins or full size muffins? Thinning out the batter is likely to throw off the chemistry of the mixture. Another option would be to adjust the amount of batter in each muffin, but that can alter how they bake up too.

My daughter loves them! I’m happy she actually likes something that she can have for breakfast! I wish I could find something even healthier.
How much sugar would be in one muffin if making 12 muffins with a 1/2 cup sugar?

Kathy P - KFA Admin 7/9/2018 9:13:10 PM

Paula - yay! So glad your daughter likes them!

As for the nutritional content, there are online calculators that allow you put in the ingredients of a recipe and it will calculate the nutritional profile. But a quick calculation - 1/2 cup sugar is 8 Tbsp or 24 tsp. Divided across 12 muffins would be 2 tsp sugar per muffin. You can try cutting the sugar to 1/3 cup.
