About a month ago I tried out Spelt flour as a Cinnamon Muffin. Tasted wonderful…BG wasn't that wonderful…sigh.
Hubby happily devoured the leftovers.
After a bit of thinking, came up with some modifications. Since almond flour is safe for my BG I decided to mix it with Spelt flour and try again.
I didn't figure in the carb load of my usual ingredients, 2 1/2 Tbsp butter, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 c almond flour. pinch salt, 2 Tbsp splenda, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 tsp almond extract, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 3Tbsp sour cream, and 1 lg egg. But counted the carbs for the 1/4 c of whole spelt flour (25 g) and 2 tsp honey (12 g).
Mixed it all together and cooked it in a pie pop baker. Made 27 mini pancakes. The pie pop maker wells are 1 1/2" in diameter and very shallow.
BG 102 at 9:15 PM. Then I enjoyed 7 mini pancakes. BG 107 at 9:45 PM
Next BG was tested every 15 min for 2 hrs.
10 PM 104 10:15 PM 105 10:30 PM 101 10:45 PM 122
11PM 102 11:15 PM 103 11:30 PM 106 11:45 PM 103
With only about a 20 pt spike recipe is a keeper. Way better BG than with a spelt flour only version I think it was a 50+.
Next try I might decrease the Splenda and the honey. I was just wanting the slightly too sweet taste of a cinnamon roll.
