  1. Hi Jessica,
    This recipes looks awesome! What would the sugar/sweetener equivalent be if I don’t have packets on hand? Would it be about a tablespoon of sugar?

    • I believe each packet is the equivalent to 2 tsp of sugar, but I find that it really depends on what it’s used in and who is eating it. I’d suggest using 1 tbs of sugar, and if it’s not sweet enough for you, just top the muffin with banana slices or a drizzle of pure maple syrup 🙂

      • I tried this and subbed banana for the applesauce and carrot juice for the nondairy milk and also added chia seeds. I used 4 scoops of Trader Joe’s pure stevia extract. It turned out so great! Sorghum really is perfect for achieving a soft texture for gluten free quick breads. Thanks so much for sharing, Jessica. I look forward to seeing more of your recipes!

      • Wow, great subs for the applesauce and milk! I never would’ve thought to add chia seeds in here either, but that’s genius. I agree, I’m starting to really appreciate how awesome sorghum is! 🙂

  10. I made this recipe, but instead I subbed the sorghum flour with oat flour, and used yogurt instead of apple sauce. I microwaved it and… IT EXPLODED IN MY MICROWAVE. Now my microwave is fine, I tried the muffins and, not half bad. But I’m not sure what went wrong. I still have a cup left of batter

  11. I’m so excited to try this! Would almond, brown rice, or coconut flour be okay subs for the sorghum flour?

  12. Hi Jessica!

    I am really looking forward to making this! I am currently in Ireland and Sorghum flour apparently seems to be out of stock etc. so as you said in another comment; i’ll be using Brown rice flour instead.

    Although I do have a question: can I use Coconut milk as an alternative to almond milk?

    Many thanks!
