Granny Smith Apple Part 2

After eating one small apple and spiking a bit, I decided I would try making dessert instead.

Hopefully adding nuts and butter, as in fat, will slow down the carb absorption.  I made up my own recipe with 2 apples, oatmeal, pecans, cinnamon, and butter.  My BF got a bit of brown sugar in his.  The pictures show the nutrition information, and each stage of the creation process.  I baked it for 45 min at 350 degrees F.  I splashed a bit of sugar free creamer and added whipped cream.                                                                                     

 I tested at 125 mg/dL before I ate it. A bit high, I know but hoping the 16 carbs won't spike my number too bad.  Good thing whipped cream isn't sugary!!  WOW, 108?  I wonder if that walk after dinner is still helping.  Amazing!  I'm keeping the recipe and testing it out again another day just to make sure because we all know that just a few changes to what we do, or don't do, can affect our numbers. Eat and test. Exercise and test. Test and retest. Just another day!
