Best Ever Eggless Banana Oatmeal Muffins

These have to be the best banana muffins I've tasted! I found this recipe on and tweaked it to make it egg-free and low-fat. These muffins taste best fresh from the oven, and also are the perfect, healthy way to start your day!

30 minutes (10 min prep, 20 min cooking)
6 muffins

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup brown sugar, unpacked
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/8 cup skim milk or soy milk
1/8 cup applesauce
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup mashed bananas

1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
2 In a bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt.
3 In another large bowl, mix together milk, applesauce, and vanilla.
4 Add the mashed bananas, and combine thoroughly.
5 Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture until just combined.
6 Lightly grease and dust 6 muffin cups (or line with paper bake cups), and divide the batter among them.
7 Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 20 minutes.

RECIPE: Sugar-free No Bake Cookies

posted by: Filus on 05.14.2002 at 12:29 am in Special Diet Recipes Forum

Sugar-free No Bake Cookies

6 Tbs sugar free Nestles Quick
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup margarine (or I can't believe it's not butter or Mooove over
1/2 cup skim milk
1 cup coconut
3 cups quick cooking oats

Mix first 4 ingredients until smooth (with mixer or food processor). Mix
coconut and oats until well combined.

Place wax paper on a cookie sheet. By teaspoonfuls or tablespoonfuls,
into balls and place on cookie sheet. Refrigerate 1 hour. Store in
refrigerator. Quantity varies depending on size of cookies.

* some margarines can be cooked with and some can't so use what is
in your area that can be used for cooking. If you are preparing these
for a
diabetic with renal problems, "Mooove Over Butter" is the best choice.
Can't Believe It's Not Butter" is next in line.

RE: LOOKING for: Wheat-free Cornbread (Follow-Up #1)

posted by: grainlady on 11.12.2006 at 03:01 pm in Special Diet Recipes Forum

Here's the recipe my mother used (she had celiac disease). It's a bit cryptic...such as what size pan to use and mixing information - which was typical of her oft-used recipes ;-). I'm going to bet it will fit a 9x9-inch pan (greased); and to mix: mix dry ingredients together and add the wet and only mix until smooth.

2 c. corn meal
2 T. sugar
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
2 t. baking powder
2 eggs
2 c. sour cream

Bake 400 for 20-25 minutes.

Yellow Corn Muffins
(source: Living Well Without Wheat - The GLUTEN-FREE GOURMET by Bette Hagman)

1 c. yellow cornmeal
1 cup corn flour
1/4 c. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
2 eggs, beaten
1 c. buttermilk
2 T. shortening, melted

Preheat oven to 400F. Grease 12 muffin cups.

Sift the dry ingredients together into a mixing bowl. Stir in beaten eggs, buttermilk, and melted shortening.

Spoon into prepared cups. Bake for about 25 minutes. Makes about 12 muffins.

Bob's Red Mill has a gluten-free corn bread mix. See link below.

RECIPE: Diabetic Apple Cinnamon Cobbler

posted by: israeln on 12.27.2006 at 11:01 pm in Special Diet Recipes Forum

Here's a dessert recipe for diabetics that uses fructose instead of regular white sugar (sucrose). Fructose has a lower glycemic index and is also sweeter, meaning less is required in the recipe.


4 medium baking apples peeled, and
sliced thin
1 cup water
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons cornstarch or arrowroot
1/4 cup fructose
=== BISCUITS ===
1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Cook the apple filling ingredients in a large saucepan over medium heat until apples are soft and mixture is thickened, about 10 minutes. Pour the apple mixture into a casserole dish.

Prepare biscuit dough by combining the whole-wheat pastry flour and baking powder. Add the oil and stir until it is well distributed. Add the honey and buttermilk. Stir with a fork until the flour mixture is moist. Add additional milk, if necessary.

Drop the biscuit dough by tablespoons on top of the apples. Place the casserole in the oven and bake for 20 minutes until biscuits are golden brown. Serve warm.

This recipe yields 6 servings. Serving size: 1/2 cup fruit filling, 1 (2-inch) biscuit. Recipe Source: Best Diabetic Dessert Recipes

recipe: 'real' ginger ale w/no sugar (stevia)

posted by: heirloomtomato on 07.16.2006 at 10:07 pm in Special Diet Recipes Forum

I found this recipe when I was looking for stevia jam recipes from the SteviaCanada site (found some good ones for that too!). It sounds yummy and is the real thing. Store bought ginger ale dosen't even have ginger in it any more. I am Type 2 diabetic and this recipe uses stevia and I am looking forward to trying it out. Thought maybe someone else here would be interested in it also.

Ginger Ale drink
3 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup peeled and chopped ginger root
2 TBS vanilla
1 TBS lemon extract
1/4 tsp stevia concentrate powder
Carbonated or sparkling water

Rapidly boil ginger root in water for 10 minutes. Strain and place liquid in a jar. Stir in vanilla, lemon and stevia. Cool and store in the refrigerator.

RE: RECIPE: Hunza Diet Bread (Follow-Up #2)

posted by: Henriett (Guest) on 08.08.2001 at 05:32 pm in Special Diet Recipes Forum

Pasting the recipe that I found on the Forum:

Hunza Diet Bread is a delicious, dense, chewy bread that's very nutritious and is almost impervious to spoilage. The following recipe makes a huge batch of approximately 60 (sixty) 2 inch squares, high in protein, vitamins and minerals.
Keeps weeks at room temperature, even longer in the fridge and indefinitely in the freezer. The recipe for this wonderful bread is as follows: -
* 4 cups of water
* 3.5 (three & one half) to 4 pounds of natural buckwheat or millet flour
* 1.5 (one & one half) cups of canola oil
* 1.5 (one & one half) cups of natural unrefined sugar
* 16 ounces of honey
* 16 ounces of molasses
* 4 ounces of powdered soya milk (half cup)
* 1 teaspoon sea salt
* 1 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 2 teaspoons baking powder (non aluminium)
Hunza Diet Bread has a taste that is very satisfying and chewy all on its own, but you may also add if required, apricots, raisins, chopped walnuts, almonds, sliced dates to the above ingredients. Mix ingredients. Grease and lightly flour cooking pan(s). Ideally use baking trays with about 1 inch high sides. Pour batter in pan(s) half an inch thick over the base. Bake at about 300 degrees farenheit (150 C.) for 1 hour. After cooking, dry the bread in the oven for two (2) hours at a very low heat - 90 degrees farenheit (50 C). After it is cooled tip out and cut into approx 2 inch x 2 inch squares. Store it wrapped in cloth in a container.
You may need to repeat the baking depending on the size of your baking pan, and oven, until all the mixture has been used.
Hunza Diet Bread is made from natural buckwheat or millet flour. It is rich in phosphorous, potassium, iron, calcium, manganese and other minerals, as nothing has been destroyed in the preparation from the wheat. Thus it contains the essential nourishment of the grain. This is why you must ONLY use natural buckwheat or millet flour to make your own Hunza Diet Bread..... Good luck and good health .. bon appetite :-)
Suggestions to lose weight with HUNZA DIET BREAD:
There are many ways to do it. This is another benefit. It's flexible. Here are some typical plans. Each piece of bread is thinly spread with butter for a total of approximately 100 calories.
Plan A: Eat 1 piece every 5 hours of the 16 hours you're awake. That's 3 pieces which total 300 calories. This is the fastest way to lose weight I know of. It works faster than any high protein diet. Why? You have more energy and burn more calories. Second, the high fiber bread keeps your digestive system regular. Third, your body stays healthy. A healthy body means a properly functioning metabolic system.
Plan B: Really gorge yourself with the bread. Two pieces every four hours for a total of 8 pieces but only 800 calories. You'll feel full all day. In fact, I doubt many people could eat this much of the bread.
Plan C: Eat a piece in the morning for breakfast and a piece 3 hours before your dinner and you will eat a great deal less.
Plan D: Eat a piece of HUNZA DIET BREAD, 10 minutes before you eat your regular meal. When we do this we eat only a fraction, such as 1/4 of what we would normally eat. If we wait longer than 10 minutes we don't want to eat at all.
Plan E: Eat the bread at the end of meals that don't fill you up enough, such as low calorie meals. This is a perfect way to use the bread. You eat a low calorie meal, enjoy it, then eat a piece or two of bread to fill you up. Perfect! No suffering and no urge to snack.
Plan F: Alternate Plan A, B, C, D. We recommend an alternation of the plans, but some people who just want to get the weight off as soon as possible will use Plan A exclusively.
