Health and fertility benefits of Apple Pie Pockets
Cinnamon is one of the best ingredients that someone with insulin sensitivity can eat. Half a teaspoon of cinnamon per day has been shown to be very effective at normalizing blood sugar levels. Cinnamon contains hydroxychalcone, which is thought to enhance the effects of insulin. It has also been suggested that Cinnamon prevents post-meal blood sugar spikes by slowing the gastric emptying rate - meaning that food digests slowly.

1 tube pillsbury crescent rolls
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 Granny Smith apple
2 tbsp. butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 400 °F.
As the oven heats, unroll the Crescent Roll dough, separating the dough into all eight triangles.
Mix brown sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle a heavy layer of the mixture on each triangle of dough.
Slice the apple into eight wedges. Dip each in butter, set the apple wedge on the wide edge of the Crescent Roll dough, and roll it up.
Place each on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and cook in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the rolls are lightly golden. Serve warm.
