Healthy Diabetic Fruit Muffins and Pancakes Recipe

Updated on July 17, 2010

This diabetic muffin and pancake recipe is aimed more towards diabetics with type 1 diabetes but the recipe is also just as great for all types of diabetes. When it comes down to diabetes, it is a well known fact that sugary foods must be avoided but that doesn't mean that an individual with diabetes can't find something yummy to eat, that is still a bit on the savory side, with a natural sweetness. I'm going to use dried natural fruit as added flavour and natural sweetness as it helps to provide a nice fruity flavour without disturbing blood glucose management, in the long and short term.

Using easy measurements for the quick and easy preparation method of this diabetic recipe.

You will need:

2 cups of plain flour, 3 heaped teaspoons of baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 3/4 cup of sultanas or other healthy dried fruit, 1 egg, 1 cup of low fat or skimmed milk, 2 1/2 tablespoons of soy oil (any oil can be used but soy is the healthiest without containing a strong after taste), 20 small paper cake cases.

Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees and set your cake cases into a muffin tray. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl then add 1 egg and the oil into the flour mixture. Stir in the skimmed milk slowly, do not add all at once or the mixture may become lumpy. Once your mixture becomes smooth add in the dried fruit and stir. Simply add 2 1/12 tablespoons of the mixture to the paper cake cases and place into the warm oven for 10-15 minutes or until they become golden on the top.

Simply remove the muffins from the oven and place them on to a cooling tray, allowing them to cool completely.

These muffins can be stored in a large biscuit tin/container at room temperature for a few days.


If you wish to make fruity pancakes, just simply use the same mixture as displayed for the fruit muffins and preheat a frying pan (without using any oil or butter) and add 3-4 tablespoons of the mixture in to the center of the frying pan, once the frying pan has heated up thoroughly. Cook for a minute on each side or until golden.

To help make these pancakes even more exciting, try using different types of dried natural fruits.
