Low carb and low calorie pancake with yogurt and banana - breakfast for diabetic

Why this pancake is good for diabetics? As we know, people with diabetes must be careful how much sugar they consume. I suggest to use instead normal flour use oat brans. They contain a lot of fiber which will allow for slower distribution of sugar in the blood. Add some cinnamon as well. Studies has shown that cinnamon helps regulate blood sugar levels and reduces the risk of retinopathy, neuropathy and nephropathy.


  • egg
  • 3 tablespoons of oat bran
  • half teaspoon of cinnamon
  • half a teaspoon of cocoa powder
  • banana
  • greek yogurt
  • teaspoon of oil

Mix egg with oat brans, cocoa powder and cinnamon. Put teaspoon of oil on frying pan and fry pancake for about 2 minutes on each side. Serve pancake with greek yogurt and banana.


Healthy, tasty and nutritious gingerbreads

This gingerbreads are healthier alternative to the traditional gingerbreads. They contain large amounts of fiber, because instead of the usual flour I used half and half whole-wheat flour and wheat bran. This is very helpfull if you want to stay full for longer and help to avoid snacking.

Ingredients for 40 gingerbreads:

  • 2 cups whole grain flour
  • 2 cups wheat bran
  • 150ml honey
  • 50g gingerbread spice (turmeric, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon)
  • 2 spoons of baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of stevia
  • 150ml of milk
  • 2 tbsp of rapeseed oil
  • dark and white chocolate to decorate gingerbreads


Heat the milk and honey. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients. Knead the dough should be quite hard. Roll out the dough. Cut the ginger using your favourite cookie cutters. Bake at 180 ° C for about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. I decorated my gingerbreads with dark and white chocolate.
