You might also consider asking a dietitian for free advice, but of course each person's diet is different.

This address was given to me At the Virtual Grocery Store. I made them, and most people couldn't tell the difference and they vanished just as quickly as my regular cookies. My Diabetic friends raved about them. I wanted to use the recipe as a starting point to make a better Diab Cookie, but was told rather plainly to leave it as is... lol.

diabetes is diabetes, exchanges are the best way to go..sugar,is a carb so do a carb exchange and make the cookie a small one...What i do is my meal is meat and salad and a veggie, then I check my BG after 2 hours if in limits I have a very small piece of what I want..lets say a normal slice of pie, I then cut that in half and put the other part away for the next day..Make sure you test and watch the carbs..your reward is better health and a beautiful baby.

Then again, my lowest since the surgery has been 170 which for me is a record low!! That is in the morning when I get up and before I eat. So, on the exchange, I would never be allowed a cookie!!
Luckily DW has a soft heart and lets me get away with having sweets now and then!

she eats sugar. just a limited amt. so i guess what i'm looking for is a recipe calling for maybe whole wheat flour, and a limited amt of sugar. she doesn't do well with refined things i.e. all purpose white flour, white rice etc.

loves, you really should try the recipe my DH posted (sixsix210). I have a variety of diabetics at work, even type 1 that is on a pump, and she ate the cookies and they didn't cause issues.
