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! And feel free to take a recipe and adjust it to suit your needs.

I made these this morning. They are easy, good and healthy.

1 cup Splenda Granulated
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup canola or coconut oil
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
3 large or 4 small/medium very ripe bananas
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Grease 12 to 15 muffin cups; set aside.

Cream the Splenda, applesauce and oil; stir in the eggs and bananas. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix to moisten dry ingredients. Stir in the walnuts.

Divide batter evenly between the muffin cups. I usually make 15 with this recipe. That is what I consider the right size for a diabetic.

Bake at 325 for approximately 20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Note: The ones pictured are the ones I made today. I sprinkled a little streusel over them. It was Splenda, flour, and a little butter cut in.
