I adapted this recipe for a diabetic friend. I substituted 1 cup of Splenda (for Baking) for the sugar and substituted unsweetened applesauce for the honey. You can use blueberries, prunes, fig, or raisins as well as dates.
"I made this with granulated splenda (not splenda for baking) and they were still excellent! Look even better than the photo, as they raised up well and look appetizing. I will definately make this again. Thanks"- oldrosegirl

Hdesanto 1 year agoLoved the muffins. I am always looking for a healthy breakfast on the go. I used fresh figs instead of the dates and granulated splenda and they were excellent.

Nanca 7 years agoALERT!! These are good muffins, there's no doubt. However you must be careful giving them to a diabetic as they can and will raise the blood sugar tremendously if you eat too many at a time. 'SPLENDA FOR BAKING' is about 1/2 real sugar and 1/2 SPLENDA granular. I tell you this because I am a diabetic and so is my husband. I make a similar recipe and it really is hard to stopat just one. If you are a diabetic don't be put off by my comments - just be careful. Nan
promfh 7 years agoThe Splenda used in this recipe was probably 'Splenda for Baking' which contains some sugar but works better in baked goods.
