During a recent trip to Costco, I had a major pancake craving and I knew it would have to be something unique and healthy. Besides being on a perpetual diet these days and having Type 1 Diabetes since 17, I would also be writing this recipe for the Costco Diabetes Magazine Website CDiabetes.com. So cool, right?!? I went on the search for healthy, low glycemic, diabetic friendly ingredients to keep my sugar under control so I could eat the entire stack of pancakes (like I always do). I wandered the store for inspiration and with all of Costco’s signature brand items, I had no problem coming up with a recipe on the spot. It all began when I found the organic pre-sliced Crunch Pak sweet apples in the refrigerator section. Next up came the Kirkland Signature Natural Creamy Peanut Butter with only dry roasted peanuts and sea salt on the list of ingredients. Since I love eating apples with peanut butter, it only made sense to turn that into my new pancake recipe. With the addition of Kirkland Signature Plain Greek Yogurt in place of milk and Carrington Farms Ready to Eat Organic Flax Hemp Blend in place of all-purpose flour, I was armed with all I needed to make healthy diabetic-friendly pancakes. Besides the sliced apples, raw unfiltered honey and flax hemp blend, all other ingredients in this recipe are Kirkland Signature items.
