Diabetic Bread Recipe

Diabetic Bread Recipe - Diabetic recipes do not have to lack flavor or sweetness.  In fact, you can use most recipes and substitute diabetic friendly ingredients for the non-friendly ingredients (like sugar).

Flour is a staple food and required for quite a lot of baking recipes, but did you know that white flour is FULL of carbohydrates?  The body turns carbohydrates into sugar (glucose) which is a major no-no in our diabetic diets.  As a substitute, instead of using white flour use whole grain flour, such as wheat flour.  Surprisingly, I’ve found that whole grain flour tastes better anyway and it’s much better for you.  The same can be said about whole wheat bread instead of white bread.

One of my favorite breads to make is banana bread.  Here’s one I often make:

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Sugar Twin
  • 1/3 cup Margarine
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Egg whites
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 2 cup Flour
  • 4 tbsp Milk
  • 3/4 tsp Vinegar
  • 3 Bananas, ripe, mashed

Preparation: Blend sugar, Sugar Twin, and margarine. Add eggs and mix well. Sift flour and soda into bowl and stir. Mix milk and vinegar together, then add to mixture. Fold in bananas. Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees in greased 9 x 5 loaf pan. Let cool and cut into 20 slices.
