Diabetic Low Carb Peach Muffins

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 sweets 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) in our Low Carb Preach Muffins recipe. If you use canned peaches that have light syrup or heavy syrup, keep in mind that changes the nutritional values. Canned peaches in heavy syrup are not diabetic-friendly and are very high in sugar. It will also result in a sweeter muffin after being baked.

Helpful Tips and FAQs

Substituting the Flour

If you are unable to get Carbalose Flour, as sometimes it can be hard to find, feel free to substitute the flour with King Arthur Keto Wheat flour. The calories will be more and the carbs will be about the same.

You can use almond flour or coconut flour in this recipe but the result will be much denser muffins and you may need to change the amounts of liquid ingredients.

Using sugar instead of Splenda

If you want to make a non-diabetic version of this, you can take out the Splenda and substitute it for 1/2 cup of sugar.

Using A different Sweetener

I use Splenda granulated whenever possible as it does not negatively impact my blood sugar. I find that sweeteners that contain sugar alcohols cause my blood sugar to rise. If this is not a concern for you or you have a preferred sweetener, by all means, make substitutions that suit your preferences and dietary needs. Keep in mind that substituting the sweetener may change the overall nutritional information.

Using fresh peaches

If you use fresh peaches, you will need to add a little extra liquid (milk or peach juice) to make up for the lack of juice.

To get the best (ripe) peaches in the supermarket follow these tips:

  • Choose peaches that are firm but not hard
  • A ripe peach will have a nice peach aroma.
  • there will be no wrinkles in the skin
  • the skin will be free of spots or bruises.
  • There should not be any green colour on the peach skin
  • the colour of peaches varies between varieties, but most peaches have yellow undertones with reddish colour on the top.

Using frozen peaches

Frozen peaches are another great option to use instead of canned peaches. Make sure there is no sugar added to the frozen peaches before using them. Thaw them thoroughly and drain them well before adding them to the recipe for low-carb peach muffins.

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

Other fruit you can use in this recipe

  • Pears – canned in their own juice and use juice for the glaze,
  • Blueberries – use Walden Farms blueberry syrup to make the glaze,
  • Raspberries or strawberries – use fresh or thawed and drained frozen and use Walden Farms strawberry syrup in the glaze/ If using frozen fruit, mash a little for the glaze instead of Walden Farms
  • fruit cocktail – use canned that is packed in juice and use the juice for the glaze.

When the muffins are done, cool them for about 10 minutes and then drizzle with the sugar-free glaze.
