Hi Tammy, I hope you've found some recipe ideas by looking through past posts. Jeannie wrote one about
cookies recently, too. One thing that I'm sure your aunt knows is that sugar and flour make blood sugar rise. This is why it's hard to find substitute
cookies, brownies, cakes, etc. for diabetics that don't raise blood sugar. Even the sugar substitutes like Splenda when you use a lot of it can raise the blood sugar. Diabetics who are on medication may have to adjust their dosage for even the sugar-free products. Making "diabetic"
cookies or cakes is harder than desserts like cheese cake because of the flour. You can find recipes for pumpkin pie and cheese cake if you look through the last month or two. Here is a recipe from Dr. Bernstein's The Diabetes Diet
, p. 274. Peanut Butter
cookies: 2 eggs, 1 cup natural peanut butter (no sugar added), 4 T Da Vinci sugar free vanilla syrup, 1 t vanilla, 21 toasted peanut halves. Beat eggs. Add peanut butter. Stir mixture well. Add syrup and vanilla. Put 1-tablespoon mounds on a greased baking sheet 2 in. apart. Top each
cookie with a peanut half. Bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Makes 21
cookies. Makes 7 servings, 7.67 grams carbs and 1.7 oz. protein per serving.
