Diabetic Dessert Recipes

This diabetic banana bread is not only easy to make but is delicious.

This bread is not only made with bananas but are made with sunflower seed butter, which give the bread a pleasing nutty flavor without  the use of actual nuts.

If you do not have sunflower butter you can use almond butter or even nut butter will work with the recipe.

What is great with this banana bread recipe is all nut and seed butters are interchangeable.
