Muffin Tin Recipes for Diabetics
Portion control is a big part of maintaining a healthy diabetic diet. Luckily, there are some easy ways for us to put this into practice, like using a muffin tin. Yep, that's right - nowadays, muffin tins are for more than just making baking muffins in. We can make everything from breakfast to dessert in our muffin tin, and the best part is, a single muffin-cup is usually the perfect portion amount. Muffin tin recipes are also great 'cause you can make several of one thing at once, which is useful for anytime you're feeding several people or for make-ahead meals.
Check out our muffin tin recipes for diabetics below, and let us know which one is your favorite!
