Oats help control your blood sugar!

"On the whole, this review has revealed an improvement of glucose, insulin sensitivity and lipid profiles after oats consumption. Compared with a control meal, a single meal of oatmeal also showed superiority of acute glucose and insulin responses."

RECIPE: Oatmeal Flax Super-High-Fiber Pancakes (23 net carbs)

Keep your cooked pancakes in the oven on warm until you are ready to serve.

Pancake Topping Suggestions

You have to stay away from sugary syrups when it comes to your pancakes otherwise your blood sugar will not like it!

Stick with fruit, coconut-milk yogurt or chia jam.

Pancakes as Wraps

Both of these pancake recipes for Diabetics give you a pancake that is tasty even out of the fridge!

And the pancakes are super spongy too so you can wrap things in your pancake!

Or use your pancake to replace bread!

How about scrambled eggs, chopped tomatoes and sliced avocado all wrapped in a pancake? Sounds super yummy to me!

So, now you have 2 different pancake recipes for Diabetics!

Now let us all know in the comments below which recipe YOU will be trying first.

Not Sure What Oats To Buy?

When you're using oats as flour, make sure you buy the Thick Rolled Oats that require a bit more cooking -- NOT Instant Oats!

Thick Rolled Oats have more fiber and will keep your blood sugar stable for many hours after you eat them...but Instant Oats won't since most of the fiber has been taken away.
