Honey and Cinnamon Baked Apples with Almonds
This dessert is low GI as the fibre in the apples and oats slows down the release of glucose into the bloodstream, while the almonds and cinnamon have been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels. Honey is a natural sweetener that has a lower glycemic index than sugar, meaning it won’t cause a rapid spike in blood sugar levels.
