LOVE the coconut flour muffins!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cooking with Coconut Flour: A Delicious Low-Carb, Gluten-Free Alternative to Wheat (Paperback)
I now make pumpkin, pineapple/banana, and sausage/cheese coconut muffins and freeze - nuke a couple for breakfast - they're not only good for you, they taste GREAT! This cookbook discusses how to use coconut flour, many of the recipes incorporate coconut oil, and gives you enough information to improvise even further.....

forgot to mention in my review - I use Splenda with about 1/4 tsp of molasses - making the muffins almost carb-free - no sugar or stevia (which I don't like the taste of) - "perfect" results and quite an allowable food for low-carbing.....

I do not use sweeteners such as Splenda, Nutrisweet,etc. after reading the book "Sweet Deception" written by Dr. Mercola. I strongly recommend that anyone comsuming these sweeteners read this book. Stevia is a much better choice.

Honey is the best sweetener to use whenever possible as it is all natural and does not spike blood sugar, it's perfect for diabetics. It does take some trial and error to get the taste just right when replacing sugar in recipes. I try to always use local honey for everyday and Manuka honey for its medicinal benefits - 1 tsp/day.

Steph, honey DOES affect serum glucose. Of course eating natural is the best option when possible - but if you are diabetic, be aware that using honey in the place of sugar may affect your serum glucose a bit LESS than sugar, but it will still affect it.
I don't understand why people think that Amazon reviews are a forum for spouting their homespun 'medical wisdom' - you can kill people that way. Limit your review to the book, please!
Thank you to Harry Mathis for a good review - I found it helpful. BTW, stevia is not a goog choice for all of us - to some of us it tastes horrible.
