Diabetic Apple Crisp Recipe


Love the Autumn with its cool weather and brisk breezes. Why not top a hearty stew meal after a long hard walk with some diabetic apple crisp. Apples are a good source of fiber and vitamins. Here's a recipe I'm sure will please. Take it to a potluck or a nice dinner at home.

The cinnamon in the recipe will help your blood sugar.

Apples are a good source of nutrients. Remember the old adage of 'an apple a day will keep the doctor away'. Eating apples helps to reduce blood cholesterol, improve bowel function(because of the fiber), reduce risk of stroke, prostate cancer, Type II diabetes and asthma. This is due to the fibre and phytonutrients present in the apples.

Recent studies have shown that eating apples are linked to reducing cancer risk in several studies. Some examples are :

* Quercetin, a flavonoid abundant in apples has been found to help prevent the growth of prostate cancer cells.
* Phytonutrients in the skin of apples inhibited the growth of colon cancer cells by 43%. Remember that is where most of the nutrients of the apples are in the skin. Just as for peachs and other stone fruit.
* Foods containing flavonoids like those in apples may reduce risk of lung cancer as much as 50%. So remember your APPLE!!
* Dietary phenolics such as flavonoids (found in apples) have inhibitory effects on the developments of carcinogenic substances in the bladder, thereby reducing risk of bladder cancer, especially in smokers. But as a diabetic you shouldn't smoke because it increases higher risks of strokes and heart attacks.

Ingredients

Sliced apples, enough to fill 9-inch
square baking dish 3/4 full
2 tablespoons flour
Sugar substitute to equal 1 cup granulated sugar
Cinnamon
Allspice
Mace

Topping:
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup quick oatmeal
1/4 cup margarine
1 teaspoon baking soda

Heat oven to 400 degrees F.

Place apples, flour sugar substitute and a sprinkle cinnamon, allspice and mace in 9-inch square cake pan.

Mix topping ingredients together like a pie crust and add to apples.

Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F and continue baking for 40 to 50 minutes.

Eat while still warm.
