There are so many benefits to increasing the fiber in your diet. Foods high in fiber help to soak up LDL cholesterol in the bloodstream, thus reducing the risk of arterial deposits and possible myocardial infarction. Studies show that fiber also helps to slow the absorption of sugar in the gut, which helps to stabilize blood-glucose levels, which is good for diabetics, those who suffer from insulin resistance and obesity. These muffins are a fairly painless way to add fiber to your diet--at least for non-diabetics. Probably too much sugar for a diabetic--sorry.
