Easy to make, Diabetic-friendly low carb peach muffins

This diabetic-friendly, low carb peach muffins recipe is a diabetic-friendly version of an old-time family favourite. They are perfect with a coffee or tea, with just a nice amount of sweetness. These are a great take-along snack or serve warm with your favourite coffee.

You can use canned peaches (sugar-free of course) or fresh peaches. If you love peaches and are looking to serve a variety of peach flavoured sweetest, try our Sugar-Free Peach Cheesecake, or our Sugar-Free Peach Cobbler. They are both super tasty and a real crowd-pleaser.

I used canned peaches (in their own juice). If you used canned peaches that have a light syrup or heavy syrup, keep in mind that changes the nutritional values. It will also result in a sweeter muffin after baked.

when draining frozen peaches, use a sieve and let them sit for about half an hour.
