RECIPE: Diabetic Apple Cinnamon Cobbler

israelnDecember 27, 2006

Here's a dessert recipe for diabetics that uses fructose instead of regular white sugar (sucrose). Fructose has a lower glycemic index and is also sweeter, meaning less is required in the recipe.

Ingredients

=== APPLE FILLING ===

4 medium baking apples peeled, and

sliced thin

1 cup water

2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 tablespoons cornstarch or arrowroot

1/4 cup fructose

=== BISCUITS ===

1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 cup canola oil

1 tablespoon honey

1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk

Method

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Cook the apple filling ingredients in a large saucepan over medium heat until apples are soft and mixture is thickened, about 10 minutes. Pour the apple mixture into a casserole dish.

Prepare biscuit dough by combining the whole-wheat pastry flour and baking powder. Add the oil and stir until it is well distributed. Add the honey and buttermilk. Stir with a fork until the flour mixture is moist. Add additional milk, if necessary.

Drop the biscuit dough by tablespoons on top of the apples. Place the casserole in the oven and bake for 20 minutes until biscuits are golden brown. Serve warm.

This recipe yields 6 servings. Serving size: 1/2 cup fruit filling, 1 (2-inch) biscuit. Recipe Source: Best Diabetic Dessert Recipes
