A diabetic shouldn't have white flour.

There is wheat flour. Anyone try this recipe with that?

This should not be called a "diabetic" recipe, as diabetics should not eat highly refined foods that have a high GI (Glycaemic Index). They should eat low GI complex carbohydrates and the very minimum of fat. To make this recipe suitable for diabetics, substitute wholemeal flour for the white flour, add some whole grains, and omit the butter (saturated fat, high in cholesterol). Add some extra apple sauce if too dry.
