    Need Recipe Ideas for Diabetic Neighbor

    Hello everyone!

    I recently moved into my first house and was planning on making some sweets to pass out to meet my new neighbors. I just found out that one of my neighbors has been in and out of the hospital for treatment related to diabeties.

    So I need your help in some ideas of recipes to make for him and his wife. I have no idea about Diabetic cooking, is it something as simple as substituting sugar?

    Any suggestions would be ideal, I would like to make at least 2 different recipes so I am open to a variety of recipes.

    Thanks so much,

    Hi Kimmie wave.gif
    It's great that you think of your neighbour, he will be so happy. Being on a restricted diet always is difficult, and it's so wonderful if others care!

    A good thing for your neighbour would be something like veggies with sugar free dips. Deviled eggs would be another option.
    If you want to make something baked like cookies, you have to use sugar replacer.

    Just tell us what kind of tidbits you're thinking of so we can tell what is suitable and what isn't.

    I was thinking of " Whatever Floats Your Boat" Brownies! and Oatmeal Raisin cookies. I have a recipe at home for the cookies that I have been wanting to try. Unfortunately it is still packed in a box somewhere so I don't know the exact ingredients.


    Does that help with you so you can help me... icon_lol.gif

    Thanks, KimmieCat

    Yes, that really helps.
    You can make the brownies and use splenda or xylitol in place of the sugar. Maybe this helps:

    For the whatever-floats-your boat part I'd use nuts if he can have nuts because they don't contain sugar and won't affect his blood sugar.
    Oatmeal cookies basically the same, but raisins contain too much sugar. So maybe this would be a better option:
    Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

    If you need more information, just ask away icon_biggrin.gif

    Thanks Mia, those are wonderful suggestions.

    I think I will make those Peanut Butter Cookies and sub the sugar for splenda in the brownies.
