Making Everyday Food Special

One of the things that I like about Dr. Grandma’s Muffins Your Way Mix is that it gives me the ability to make something that is not only nutritious, but looks and tastes like I spent lots of time – telling my love, ‘I care so much for you, that I made this special breakfast’ (or dessert). I truly do care; but usually my time is really crunched. Using the muffin mix, I can make a treat in minutes without getting all the measuring things and ingredients out.

The following recipe is perfect for diabetes, and all of us who are trying to avoid the extra simple blood-sugar raising effects of simple sweeteners like sugar, honey and corn syrup.
