I really want to try this recipe but I can not find sunflower oil at my local grocery store. I have avocado oil or olive oil. Can I substitute with them?
I have never used avocado oil so I can't answer for that. But I´ll recommend using any neutral tasting oil for this recipe, like grapeseed or canola oil. Olive oil might work if it´s light olive oil and hopefully, it won't have a large effect on the overall recipe.
Thank you for this recipe. I have just tried it and it worked out very well. I have added one tablespoon of flaxseed to have some fiber and good fat. I think next time I would cut a bit of salt and sunflower oil. Unfortunately I can't post the picture of those muffins I made.
Can we subtitute the plain flour to almond flour for this receipe ?
I used gluten free flour and they are surprisingly good! Texture is a big thing for me and this is pretty decent.
What type of polenta did you use? I use Italian instant polenta, would that work?
These are delicious! How long (and how) do you store them? Have you tried freezing?
