diabetic fruit muffins


my husband is always looking for something different to eat on his night shifts. he loves his fruit cake, but me working full time, i find it difficult to get the time to make his fruit cake then i found this recipe on a.b.c. and make them for him every now and then for a change. i like to use mini muffin pans for these as it makes them go a little further.
