  • Love the sugar free, I often use mashed banana or puréed apple in place if sugar. Also love the use of olive oil in place of butter or marge. I bet these taste great and are practically guilt free

  • I’d love to make these. I imagine the natural sugars will give me the sweetness I like.

  • Nice recipe – but not sugar free – bananas have sugar, apples have sugar and baby food has added sugar to it’s fructose content. I’m sure the muffins taste great – but still full of sugars.

  • You don’t need to add sugar because there is so much sugar content from the fruit (fructose)
    Not sure these are suitable for diabetics. Somebody may know the answer to that.


    • Think indeed you don’t need sugar added to baking products.
      For people with diabetes the carb content is more important then the sugar content.
      It’s a common myth that if you have diabetes you shouldn’t eat certain foods because they’re “too sweet.” Some fruits do contain more sugar than others, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat them if you have diabetes.
      The total amount of carbohydrates in a food affects blood sugar levels more than does the source of carbohydrates or whether the source is a starch or sugar. One serving of fruit should contain 15 grams of carbohydrates. The size of the serving depends on the carbohydrate content of the fruit.
      The advantage of eating a low-carbohydrate fruit is that you can consume a larger portion. But whether you eat a low-carb or high-carb fruit, as long as the serving size contains 15 grams of carbohydrates, the effect on your blood sugar is the same.
      The following fruit servings contain about 15 grams of carbohydrates:
      1/2 medium banana
      1/2 cup (83 grams) cubed mango
      1 1/4 cup (190 grams) cubed watermelon
      1 1/4 cup (180 grams) whole strawberries
      1/3 cup (80 grams) cubed sapodilla (chikoo)
      3/4 cup (124 grams) cubed pineapple
