100's of Diabetic Recipes!

Recommended Posts

Hello! I eat low sugar/low glycemic as a lifestyle and have posted 100's of diabetic safe recipes on my website if you want to check them out! Here is an awesome chocolate muffin recipe of mine! Enjoy!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 c oats
  • 3 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (or regular plain low fat yogurt)
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar (or 1-1/2 Tbsp. vinegar)
  • 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 cup sugar substitute (like Splenda granular) OR 1/4 cup + 2 tbs stevia
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (OR you could use white chocolate OR peanut butter chips!)

*Foil cupcake liners, remove the inner paper lining (I say foil, because from experience, paper liners tend to stick to muffins!)

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 (12-cup) muffin pans with foil cupcake liners, or spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
     
  2. In a blender, (or food processor), mix all of the ingredients together, except for the chocolate chips. Blend until oats are ground and mixture is smooth.
     
  3. Place mixture in a bowl and gently stir in 1/2 of the chocolate chips (set the rest aside). Scoop mixture into prepared muffin pans.
  4. Place muffins tins in the oven for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove muffins from the oven (but don’t shut oven off), and distribute the other half of the chocolate chips on top of each muffin.
     
  5. Place the muffins back into the oven and bake for an additional 2-5 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. *Note, you could skip this step by putting all of the chips in the batter, and baking the muffins for 12-15 min straight, but this method gives the muffins the traditional ‘VitaTop Muffin’ look with the chocolate chips on top!
     
  6. Cool muffins before removing from pan. ENJOY!!! Love Dashing Dish!

I noticed your recipes don't have carb counts on them, only calories. Most diabetics need to know an idea of carbs in a single portion. Many of us have to stay away from any kind of processed wheat flour, grains like oats and fruits, even applesauce. All of these items add carbs to a recipe. Your recipes did look great, just wish I could eat them.

The way your recipe reads, you don't really know much about Diabetes, but thanks for playing.
