Hey I just tried these muffins and the consistancy and beginning taste are great… except one thing. They taste like too much baking soda. They have a tangy after taste. Is the 2 tbsp baking soda a typo? I really think that they would taste great if they didn’t have so much baking soda.

Renee, a substitution for the soy could be rice milk or almond milk.
