I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected. Everyone reacts different to various foods. Check your blood sugar readings so you will know whether or not a recipe works for you! And feel free to take a recipe and adjust it to suit your needs.

1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup whole-wheat flour
1/3 cup rolled oats
3tbsp Splenda Granulated
1 stick butter

4 large Granny Smith apples
1 tbsp firmly packed Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Grease a 2-quart baking dish; set aside.

To make the filling, peel, core, and slice the apples; layer in the baking dish.  Combine the brown sugar blend and cinnamon together in a cup and sprinkle evenly over the apples.

To make the topping, place both flours, eats, Splenda, and the butter in a large bowl.  Mix together well, using hands if necessary to blend the butter in well.  Sprinkle evenly over the apples in the baking dish.

Bake at 425 degrees until apples have softened and the topping is lightly browned, approximately 20 to 25 minutes.

This dish is best served warm.  Top with a scoop of sugar-free vanilla ice cream, if desired.
