One for the diabetics. I adapted this from a recipe on Splenda's web site.
Make and share this Reduced Sugar Blueberry Muffins recipe from Food.com.

These are great! They bake up dense and moist -- not spongy or odd-textured like some low fat, sugar free muffins. I will be making these often.
Better that most of the healthy recipes I have tried. Thanks for posting it.
I followed the directions to a T and was a little concerned as the mixture seemed a little heavy, but after baking for 30 minutes they came out of the oven looking, smelling and tasting delicious, the honey gives these muffins a lovely flavour. I got 12 large muffins.
