Diabetes is a condition in which your body cannot properly use and store food for energy. The fuel that your body needs is called glucose, a form of sugar. Glucose comes from foods such as fruit, milk, some vegetables, starchy foods, and sugar.
Eating healthy, low-carb, and low-sugar foods are excellent ways to help control your blood sugar (glucose).

avocado oil cooking spray
2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup erythritol or another sugar substitute
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 cup avocado oil
4 large eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 small apple (peeled, cored, and finely diced)
Preheat your oven to 350° F. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt.
In another medium bowl, combine the oil, eggs, and almond milk.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix. Add the apple and stir.
Fill the muffin tins. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a fork or toothpick comes out clean.
To freeze: let the muffins cool completely, then remove them from the muffin pan. Arrange them in a single layer on a sheet pan and freeze for at least 2 hours. Once they are frozen solid, store them together in a freezer-safe ziptop bag. Or, wrap each muffin well in aluminum foil to store individually.
