Frequently Asked Questions

Can diabetics eat muffins?

Muffins are usually made with less fat (butter or oil) or none at all, like this diabetic oatmeal muffin. They are good for diabetics as long as the recipe uses unprocessed ingredients such as whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose, and no sugar. The fruits in this recipe and a bit of Splenda will sweeten the muffins, making it a good diabetic-friendly recipe. You can also try making these banana oat muffins and simply omit the sugar to make a similar dessert. 

How do you make muffins rise and fluffy?

Baking powder or baking soda will help muffins rise and make them fluffy. Although, you have to be careful and accurately measure either ingredient using a measuring spoon. Too much baking soda or baking powder will cause your muffins to collapse or turn out too hard.
