“I have hypoglycemia (hyperinsulinism) and I have a sweet tooth, so I've been experimenting with breads and desserts made without table sugar. The goal is to make food take longer to digest, so whole grains, extra fiber and protein, and a healthy balance of fats are needed. These muffins taste like the real thing. They are sweet enough to satisfy me and brown beautifully because of the fructose. The taste of the butter greasing the tin keeps me from slathering it on later. The muffins stay moist for days in a zip-lock bag. Zap two in the microwave for 30 seconds, and they taste fresh-baked again.”
