@Uncle Steve W -
I bet it would work fine to substitute regular flour for whole wheat, and it would probably increase total fiber, thereby decreasing net carb count. Not sure about oatmeal.

Totally new here so a question on this. Would it be better to replace some or all of the flour with whole wheat or oatmeal? About a week into this s a real noob. Looking for ways to transition my wife who is somewhat resistant since she does not have problems.

One negative comment, the nutritional information should indicate the serving size in grams (g), like the rest of the information.

This is a standard for pancakes. I substitute buckwheat for the flour and butter for the canola oil. Despite it's name, buckwheat is not a true cereal and contains no gluten and has a lower GI than modern wheat. Plus, I like the taste! I also add chopped walnuts and hazelnuts.

evaziem, some of us can eat things like this and not have our sugar bothered, others can not. It is not your place to criticize what we eat. Some of these recipes are to high in carbs and/or sugar for me but not for my family. You need to start your own site and call it rude people only! I also agree with what gfulfer13515 said. Please reread if you forgot what was said.

almost every recipe that I have looked at you have some sort of negative comment to say or advertisement of some sort to make. My mother always taught me that if you do not have anything nice to say, do not say anything at all. Every person is different, and therefore, the actions and reactions of the body will be different. I am sure that the diabetics who look at these recipes will double check the nutritional value stated above and know how different foods and ingredients will affect their glucose levels. I know that I do. I look at these recipes as, maybe, a once a month splurge to reward myself. Most of these would not be an everyday "event". However, with each and every comment that you make, you assume people are idiots and cannot think for themselves. Plus, we definitely do not need the government's "research" to tell us what or what not to eat. You take care of yourself, I will take care of myself, and each individual person will take care of his/her individual self. You are not the diabetic/health nanny, so please quit being so condescending here.

evaziem, no I don't since I am diabetic and I eat these and my blood sugar is between 89 and 92 one hour after.

Dear Anonymous,
It's not about me. I know better. It's about those who come to Diabetic Connect web site looking for advice and see this and think: "Hm.. I can have this dish. The diabetic experts say so."
See what I mean?

allen405, even the recipe from another site does not say what the serving amount is, so you choose and see what your sugar does.

Flour is from wheat. Wheat is grain. All grains, in addition to having bad gluten and elevating one's blood sugar, contain inflammatory agents.

Inflammation is root of many chronic diseases like heart, joints, memory loss, and, yes, diabetes 2. See the article by the government's National Institutes of Health that talks about this very issue:

Breakfast cereals are another example of dangerous food that most people eat anyway. Eating eggs for breakfast instead of grains will help you stay healthier for a longer times and enjoy the only life you have…
