Diabetic Cinnamon Bun Scones

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

I love cinnamon. When I started my diabetic diet, they told me that cinnamon actually helps the insulin work and promotes health in a diabetic. SO, with that in mind, I started using tons of it. I LOVE it, so that wasn't a problem for me. I use it on lots of food, sweets and savories. This recipe is one of my favorites. I usually cut it in half for myself, but if you're preparing them for a party or a family, you'll want to make the whole batch.

These are awesome! I'm pregnant (and diabetic) and was craving cinnamon buns so I was looking for easy recipes to make and this popped up! I love scones too and this is definitely healthy! It definitely put my craving at bay - and I will for sure be making these again! I went ahead and did the glaze with milk - came out great. I'm interested in trying the orange juice one but didn't have any on hand! Thanks for sharing - this was awesome!!
