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.

Apple Pie With Peanut Butter Crumble

This is a diabetic version of a peanut butter recipe I saw.

  • 1 (21-ounce) can no-sugar added apple pie filling
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup white whole-wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
  • 1/3 cup SKIPPY® Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Spread pie filling evenly in 9-inch pie plate.
  3. In medium bowl, combine oats, flour and brown sugar. Cut in peanut butter and butter spread with pastry blender or two knives until mixture is size of small peas. Sprinkle crumb mixture over pie filling.
  4. Bake pie 20 minutes or until apples are heated thoroughly and topping is golden brown. Serve warm or cool. Top with sugar-free vanilla ice cream, if desired.
