Diabetic Cranberry Pear Muffin Recipe

When is the perfect time for this Tart Cranberry Pear Muffin Recipe? Anytime really! But snowy weekends are especially made for baking something warm to change up the regular breakfast routine.

This recipe uses silicone muffin cups so it is 100 percent oil free. Normally, this recipe would be made with apple sauce. However, instead, we tried using pureed pineapple. Either way, this is a very tasty treat.

You will also notice that these muffins are incredibly low in fat. There is only 1 gram of fat per muffin! I challenge you to find a tastier muffin with lower fat content.
