When I was the Diabetic cooking forum host for Zaar, I searched through the database for cookies with low fat and low carb nutritional numbers collecting them into this cookbook. Some have sugar but please, please note the nutritional numbers and the serving sizes. With education and a little bit of planning, we can all live with this disease without feeling left out.
This is a healthier version of the so-called Neiman Marcus $250 cookies, I still make mine with sugar but I use some flour substitutes for a slightly heathier cookie (but just as fattening, I'm afraid)
From the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. These have earned a permanent spot on my Christmas Cookie Tray. I sometimes skip the glaze and just dust with confectioner's sugar when cookies have cooled. Prep time does not include chill time.
Elegant little after-dinner treats, delicately flavored with coffee and dipped in chocolate. Low carb and low fat, perfect snacks in moderation for diabetics. Three or four of these only amounts to 12-16 grams of carbohydrates and only a trace of fat. Also low in sodium
I found this recipe on a website for diabetics, but don't tell anyone and they'll love it when they try it. It is my favorite cookie recipe with sugar or without. At first the nutritionals seemed way off but discovered there were some errors in the quantities. I'm correcting those so the nutritional info should be correct.
This recipe is a family favorite! They are light, flaky and creamy, AND reduced fat! When ever I make these, they never last more than a day. Be warned: they are addictive! One tip: Rolls spread easier when chilled well. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do! 8)
This healthy snack is not just for diabetics. It's a nice light snack for everyone. I made them for my 4-H project that I took in today to the county fair. I received a Blue Ribbon on them. Make sure you use an artificial sweetener recommended for baking.
