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.
These came out very light and crispy, but not the same texture as regular sugar meringues.
As you can see in the photo, they also come out very yellow instead of the usual white color.
I can only guess that it's the Splenda that causes it.
You can have 5 of these and only get 1 carb and 1 gram fat.
I seen these cookies made on TV. She used splenda and a lower fat margarine also organic ingredients whenever possible. If using regular shortening, decrease the flour by 1/2 cup and use level teaspoon of baking powder& soda.
These are very healthy. When I make them I usually eat a large square for breakfast, and then eat a few squares every few hours as snacks. They actually taste like dessert, but they're healthy enough to eat for a meal. This is a revised recipe that I got from the back of Seven in the Morning cereal.
This biscotti like German cookie first appeared in a local diabetic cookbook. I found it on the Internet and was intrigued by the idea of broiling the baked cookie instead of a second baking. If you are not diabetc, the fructose can be replaced with sugar. This untried recipe is being submitted for 'Zaar World Tour.
