Oat ‘n’ Nut Griddle Cakes
“I had gestational diabetes with each of my four pregnancies, and created this recipe to satisfy my craving for something sweet without compromising nutritional value,” says Sharon Schenker of Kernersville, North Carolina. “Although I no longer have diabetes, this recipe has become a healthy treat, and a frequently family favorite.”
