Kid Approved & Diabetic Friendly

Mini Chocolate & Banana Muffins

Are you having a hard time getting into the grind of a new week on this fine Monday? I am. I’m pretty sure chocolate fixes everything though, so today I am going to share this recipe for mini chocolate & banana muffins.

SONY DSCThis recipe was suggested to me by a reader, and I was so thankful for the suggestion! I love baked goods like this that are so versatile. They can be enjoyed for breakfast, packed in a lunch, or enjoyed as an after school snack. My family ate about half of the recipe and then I froze the rest. I love having my freezer stocked with items like this.


As I mentioned before, a reader suggested this recipe to me. I would absolutely love to hear from more of you as to what some of your favorite diabetic friendly recipes are. Please feel free to email suggestions to I will give the recipe a try, and if it turns out to be a hit with my family, I’d be happy to feature it right here on Finger Prickin’ Good.

Have a great week, everyone!
