Buttermilk Apple Pancakes

Pancakes are an all american breakfast dish. I've specially created this recipe as the lactic acid in the curds is known to stimulate the pancreas to produce insulin which helps to control blood sugar levels. The sweet apple topping is a healthier option to the dollop of butter and drizzle of honey that traditionally goes with pancakes. The cinnamon apple topping adds the much needed crunch and sweetness along with the goodness of apples.

A great recipe to satisfy the sweet tooth of diabetics using minimal amounts of sugar substitute. Serving it immediately is best.

Loved the apple topping! This made me realise how easy it is to make jam-like spread/topping at home which is all natural and free from preservatives.
