Sudden hunger pangs are very dangerous. In the rush to appease the gnawing tummy, we immediately reach for some tempting packaged foods, and end up increasing glucose levels in the bargain. Try to keep some healthy jar snacks like this Oats and Cinnamon Biscuit handy, to snack on when you are hungry.


With the pleasant crunch of oats and aesthetic flavour of cinnamon, this biscuit, which is mildly sweetened with a sugar substitute, is sure to appease your sweet tooth too. Apart from boosting the aroma and flavour, the cinnamon used in this recipe will also do you a world of good.


It helps keep glucose levels under check by helping the body to utilise it, and also prevents the formation of free radicals that can damage our body cells and cause complications like heart disorders. That makes this tasty snack a smart move towards better health!

Too good for a diabetic menu. Full of fibre rich oats and wheat flour, flavoured with cinnamon which is also known to control blood sugar levels and moreover these can be carried in a dabba and enjoyed at any time of the day.
