I threw these together this afternoon just to see if I could. Man, I hate to brag but these are good! And the best part is that they are so easy. Ready in minutes and bake about 12 minutes, sit back and enjoy!
1/2 cup Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup canola or olive oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
canola oil cooking spray
1/2 cup very finely chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the Splenda, 1 cup of chopped pecans, flour, baking powder, and salt together. Make a well in the center of the mixture.
In a small bowl, mix together the butter, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract; pour into the well in the center of the dry mixture. Using a spatula, blend just until moistened.
Spray 24 miniature muffin cups with the cooking spray. Sprinkle the finely chopped pecans over the bottoms of the cups. Spoon the muffin mixture, using a small spoon, into the prepared cups over the pecans. Fill cups almost full.
Bake muffins in a 425 degree oven for about 12 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove from oven and cool for 2 minutes in the pan on a wire rack. Remove from the pan gently loosening with a thin knife. Cool completely on the wire rack.
Yield: 2 dozen
So good and not bad for you! By the way, I had to shoo my husband and my grandson away from these. They loved them, too. They are neither one diabetic!
WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD
I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected. Everyone reacts different to various foods. Check your blood sugar readings so you will know whether or not a recipe works for you!
