    Nice, but I don't give my toddler sugar. Is there a sugar free, healthy version of this recipe?

      Miranda, assuming you are making 12 large muffins and your child can eat a whole one, each muffin will have 2 grams of sugar in it. That is about 1/2 a teaspoon. There is more sugar in just about every cereal on the market.
      This recipe does have a significantly higher protein content than cereal, which is great for getting a child through the morning.

    I try as much as possible in every weelicious recipe to add the least amount of sugar as possible to create a recipe that work, is delicious, but also as nutritionally balanced as possible! I'm with you, it's tough to avoid sugar and I know we all try!

    My baby is too young to have peanut butter. What could we substitute peanut butter for?

      Sunflower Seed Butter is totally nut free and safe. And you can't tell the difference. Use the same amount of sunbutter that you would peanut butter. I usually find it at Trader Joes or a health(y) food store.

      Sunflower butter or almond butter - or even soy butter - just use the same amounts :)

    my daughter is 12 months old and we celebrate each month with cupcakes that mom and dad get to eat. With this yummy breakfast cupcake Nicole can now enjoy the treat. I will bake one on her next month-bday and will post a picture on Facebook.

    Not to be contrary Miranda, but if you don't want to use this recipe as is, then don't use it. No one is forcing you to use it or feed your toddler sugar. Catherine's website is useful to many parents. I feel it is rude to ask her to customize the recipe for you. Your comments sound judgemental. Your tone implies that the recipe as a whole is unhealthy. You might want to watch your demanding tone, Catherine does not work for you.

      Megan I think you need the attitude adjustment. She simply just asked a question. Catherine is a very sweet lady and she would NEVER reply as you did.
      Catherines web site is a god send and it shows with its gaining popularity, however it is common for people to ask if they can use substitutions. Miranda obviously wants to try Catherine's amazing creation, she just wants to know if it can be done sugar free.
      You Megan may want to watch your tone, this is not your website and you have no right to tell people what they should or should not do. Mind your own business and allow Catherine, who is a very capable business woman, to handle her own website.

    Made these twice now and they are AWESOME!!! The first time I used Almond butter and the second time Peanut Butter and 1/4C. Whole Wheat flour. The second batch is way better (but the first was good too).

    I think next time I will defrost frozen strawberries and mix with the cream cheese instead of jam. I think it will be just as good and I always have them on hand.

    Annette, I have severe nut allergic kiddos, so when I read you comment and the responses I wanted to make sure you know to research the products you give your child before you do it...if baby is to young to have peanut butter, chances are they are also to young for any \"nut\" butter like almond or cashew...also my kids have a SEVERE allergy to sunflower seeds as well, and unfortunaly I had to find that out the hard way, cuz I never would have thought that sunflower seeds and nuts are the same...:(
    Hope I didnt Hijack the thread to much, these cupcakes sound yummy, and I'm so excited I found this site!

    If your child has a nut allergy- whether peanut or tree nut, they should avoid sunflower kernels. Its on a list of foods that my son should not eat, which was given to me by an allergist. He has a level 6 peanut allergy as well as a tree nut allergy.

    I tried this and my cupcakes seemed dry. I don't know what I did wrong. Any advice, it seems like a wonderful recipe

    Not trying to intrude at all but we try very very hard to avoid sugar with my daughter as well as she was tested and is very sensitive to Cane sugar so we use Beet sugar. It tastes just like sugar but doesn't have a lot of the same stuff as the cane juice has in it! She is fine with it and we do all of our baking with it now.

    I'm always up for a good substitution - do you know where in Canada I might find Beet sugar? I wonder if bulk barn has it - they seem to have lots of specialty items ...

      I can get beet sugar in my local grocery here in California, but I don't know about Canada. I'm sorry! Anyone out there familiar with shopping in Canada?!
