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 cup oat bran hot cereal, uncooked 

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup Splenda Granular
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
dash of salt
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup egg substitute*

Heat a nonstick griddle or large skillet over medium to medium high heat.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the oat bran, flour, Splenda, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

In a smaller mixing bowl, beat the buttermilk and egg substitute together using a wire whisk. Pour this mixture over the dry mixture in the other bowl. Stir mixtures together only until mixtures are just blended without large lumps.

Pour approximately 1/4 cup of the batter, per pancake, onto the hot griddle. Cook until pancakes are puffed, browned, and slightly dry around the edges. Flip and cook until the second side is browned.

Serve with your favorite low-sugar or sugar-free syrup, fresh fruit, etc.

*1/4 cup egg substitute is equal to 1 whole egg in a recipe.
