We all love to have something crunchy during tea time. With diabetic eating smaller portions helps a lot. So two snacks becomes very important. When it is baked and when it has the goodness of peanuts, flaxseeds and oats its hard to resist. It is a simple recipe which can be done under 30 minutes. I wasn’t sure if peanuts can be used for diabetes, but this article helped me to understand and yes peanuts can be used for diabetic patients. You can find the health benefits of flax seeds here.
