Does someone you love have diabetes? You may want to prepare this person breakfast in bed for their birthday or for some other special occasion. A homemade breakfast is a great way to show someone you care for them and love them, but you might not know what to make for your loved one because of his or her diabetes. There are many diabetic-friendly recipes that are delicious and healthy.
Start With Some Soft and Fluffy Pancakes
Did you think pancakes were out of the question because some pancakes contain a whole lot of sugar? If so, you can easily make great tasting pancakes with alternative ingredients. The ingredients you'll need to purchase to make these soft and fluffy pancakes include:
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons Neufchatel cheese
- 2 tablespoons almond flour
- 1 teaspoon sugar-free maple syrup
Crack your eggs into a large bowl. Add the cheese, almond flour, and the sugar-free maple syrup. Mix your ingredients together for a minute or two until you have a fairly smooth consistency. Set your mixing bowl off to the side. Spray your skillet with some light cooking oil, set the stove to medium heat, and then begin pouring your pancake mix into the skillet.
Cook the pancake mix on one side for about two minutes before flipping it over to the opposite side and cooking for one additional minute. You should have soft and delicious pancakes that are ready to get put on a plate. Adding the sugar-free maple syrup to the pancake mixture is a great way to give it a naturally sweet flavor without using any sugar. However, you may still want to drizzle a bit more of the sugar-free syrup on top of the pancakes for additional flavor.
Prepare Some Fresh Fruit as a Topping
If you'd like to add something extra to the plate with the pancakes, consider serving some fresh fruit on the side. There are certain fruits that are best for diabetics to consume. These fruits include bananas, blueberries, and strawberries. You could make a fruit salad concoction to add on top of the pancakes. Simply cut one whole banana and six large strawberries into thin slices. Add a handful of blueberries in a small bowl with the sliced strawberries and bananas. Drizzle two teaspoons of the sugar-free syrup on the fruit, toss it around to ensure every piece is covered, and then place the fruit right on top of the pancakes as a finishing touch for the one you love.
Prepare an easy and delicious breakfast meal for your diabetic loved one. These fluffy pancakes with fresh fruit and sugar-free syrup taste great and are completely safe for diabetics to consume.
