They are only supposed to fill the muffin tins halfway. They are supposed to be fairly thin, not actually 'muffins'.

Do you know Russell Stover mkes sugar free chocolates? Look for them in the pharmacy area or around diabetic supplies. They come in small green bags. I find1-2 ocassionally satisfies my chocolate craving and does NOT affect my blood sugar.

Yeah, I bought Russell Stover all the time because they were, well, Sugar Free . I thought that meant free, like they made no difference. After I started keeping track of my bg I learned what sugar alcohols were and the Russell Stover has , for two pieces, 19g of total carbs of which 14g is sugar alcohols. I understand that as rule you can subtract 1/2 of the sugar alcohol so two pieces would be about 8g total carbs. If that is good for you then great however it isn't for me so I quit them. I now make my own chocolate " fat bombs " for a total of about 1.7g carbs each and one is all I need as they are filling. It lets me spend my carbs on other things that are a lot more nutritious.

Wally, thanks for using the phrase I do in my head..."spending my carbs". That's just how I view foods I eat. Do I want to spend my carbs or not?

Yeah Pat, that's exactly how I have started to think about it. Since I started to really try to keep my bg in line I have found that I have to keep my carbs down to under about 25 a day to be successful so each carb is dear to me.

I have never seen a sugar free ready-made candy that is low carb, plus they don't taste very good to me, so I stick with the low carb fudge and fat bomb recipes.

can you share how you make your own fat bombs? I'm on here searching for things to eat that don't have a ton of protein and i'm looking specifically for a muffin but forgot what it was and found this along the way.

I use this recipe:
http://www.diabetesforum.com/diabete...fat-bombs.html
but if you use the search box to the right where it says "Find the Information You Need" and put in fat bomb you will find several.
I bought the Wilton candy mold on Amazon and I doubled the recipe and it makes 24 pieces. Easy to make in the Microwave and only takes a few minutes. I figured they are 1.7C/12F/2P each. One is usually enough to satisfy me but two wouldn't hurt.

Those Russell Stover s/f chocolates are addictively delicious (they really really are, Gizmo! lol!), but I learned the hard way too . . . absolutely not diabetes-friendly, and loaded with sneaky carbs that the food industry swears won't spike us, but they spike us all the same!
