How To Make Healthier Chocolate Banana Muffins

The best muffin I've had in years. and my blood sugar didn't even spike, Thank you! –Janet W.

The key to baking and eating and enjoying desserts while still manage blood sugar levels is a recipe with balanced ingredients.

I started baking before I was diagnosed with diabetes as a teenager, and I still love to recreate healthier versions of my favorite desserts. Chocolate ranks the highest for me. And when I use almond flour and low glycemic substitutes, include protein and healthy fat in recipes, I can keep blood sugar (and mood) stable – while reducing inflammation.

I offer many recipes just like this one to my clients managing diabetes and who want food to be easy and delicious.

That’s important because…

Diabetes burnout is affecting women around the world something fierce right now.

Mental health. Physical health. The anxiety, the depression, the blahs.

It’s going to taste good. You’re going to feel like a rockstar.
