I have used almond flour, chia seed, flax seed, hemp seed, lecithin (all at once!), applesauce, etc., and have never had to cook my muffins longer than one min., 20 sec.. I use one-half cup of the dry ingredients, total. Not one-fourth, and about 1 1/2 tbs. applesauce. That is a large muffin! I may try about a third of a cup of the dry ingredients and see what happens. I think I would enjoy the "egginess" more. The larger muffin is definitely a therapeutic fixer-upper for all manner of evils - mainly wanting something to eat and not able to figure out what! Wipes that out immediately! DO NOT, however, try mixing a lot of ginger with even the best lemon flavoring!!!
I was going to see if lemon flavoring would bother me the way fresh lemon does, and this muffin was the wrong
place to do that!! The good news, though, is that the lemon didn't bother me a bit except for the awful taste with ginger!! Going by the taste, I was afraid it was going to kill me, but I ate it anyway....
