The aroma of apples stewed with cinnamon is just too hard to resist! The fruity and spicy aroma and flavour are guaranteed to delight the taste buds.

While this combo has proved its worth in many forms ranging from pies to cakes, here we have harnessed it to make a delightfully tasty but easy dessert, which is acceptable for diabetics too!

We have used whole wheat flour instead of maida and cornflour to make the pancakes, as these refined flours will raise blood sugar levels rapidly.

The healthy pancakes are then stuffed with fibre-rich apples, tinged with cinnamon and a dash of lemon. Cinnamon, apart from giving the Apple Pancake an awesome flavour, is also very helpful in controlling blood sugar levels. Diabetics can enjoy the Apple Pancake as a dessert, occasionally.

Do try other desserts like Coffee Mousse or Soya Chocolate Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce .

Loved this dessert... with the use of wheat flour and apple with very little butter and sugar substitute, this dessert is a great treat for diabetics to satisfy their sweet tooth on occasions.
