1/2 cup finely chopped Granny Smith (or other tart) apple
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans for rolling
Sugar free vanilla wafers or assorted whole-grain crackers for serving
Combine the cream cheese, apple, 1/4 cup chopped pecans, and cinnamon; stir until well blended. Shape mixture into a log and roll in the 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans.
Cover log and refrigerate at least 20 minutes before serving.
Serve with the vanilla wafers or assorted crackers.
- If you don't want to make a log, sprinkle some finely chopped pecans over the top and leave in a bowl to be served as a spread.
- Cinnamon is excellent for diabetics. If you enjoy the flavor of cinnamon, increase the amount a little.
- Pecans are also good for diabetics but you can use less for rolling, if desired.
