Yummy Cookies For The Diabetic Snacker

I am a diabetic who likes a sweet tasting snack now and then. I don't mean a sugary cream filled delight I mean something that can satisfy my sweet tooth occasionally when it rears it's ugly little head.

Being diabetic I am extra careful about what I put into my mouth. I went searching for cookie recipes because I can eat them in smaller doses and can also freeze them if I can't eat them quickly enough.

I have managed to wean myself from all of the ooey gooey sweets that were an intrical part of my diet before and don't want to start wanting them again. Cookies seemed the safest choice for me.

Anyway, me being me, I got a hold of some recipes and made them my own. I hope you find them as delicious as I do.

      Your cookies look delicious. I use Splenda in my cereal, never used it to bake. I have never used almond flour, but I think I will try it. Thank you for the share.

      Thanks for sharing these. I'm so glad to see that you are using almond flour and not the flours made from rice flour, tapioca flour, corn starch and potato starch. People who use these for gluten free recipes don't understand that all of these ingredients raise their blood sugar faster than regular sugar. I've shared a lot of recipes on HP that would also work for you. I'm going to try your peanut butter cookie today. Thanks
