Diabetic Cookie Recipe

If you or a loved one are diabetic then you’ll know that you’re supposed to avoid any food with refined sugar due to the problems it causes with fluctuating blood sugar levels.  The problem is that everyone likes to have a sweet treat now and again, and diabetics are no different.  As a result you will see lots of products on the market that cater for the diabetic that is looking for something tasty including sugar free cakes, lollipops, brownies and of course cookies.  With diabetes I thought cookies would be a thing of the past but wow, was I ever amazed to find out how many recipes follow most diabetic diets.  Honestly, I never thought there was such thing as a diabetic cookie recipe.  I have never been so happy to be wrong.  As I said in my Diabetic Dessert Recipe article, eating well is one of life’s greatest pleasures and for me, cookies are one of life’s pleasures.

I have made a diabetic cookie recipe collection, my most favorites below.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

Bake at 375 F for 20-25 minutes, or until lightly browned and the bars pull away from the sides of the pan.Cool to room temperature and cut to yield 36 bars. serve 2 bars per serving.
