ISO cookies for diabetics

i'd like to bake white chocolate chip cookies for a pregnant diabetic good friend of mine. Does anyone have a low carb recipe and does NOT use artificial sweetener. she's not allowed to use artificial sweeteners during pregnancy.

thanks.

I'd say you need to make something other than a sweet - but I'm no baker so there may be options out there!

I've been where she is - gestational diabetes. Depending on how bad it is she either needs to eat a small amount of cookie (you could make them very small so she feels like she hasn't just broken a piece off) or just wait until she delivers. It's a small price to pay for that little bundle of joy! I know I still used sugar in my coffee - I just had to be careful. Does she use sugar at all for anything else?

I would start here and look up nutrition and recipes on the left side column.

Sweeteners & Desserts - Nutrition & Recipes - American Diabetes Association

Wow that is limiting.. no sugar and no artificial sugar?? I would agree with Elfie, diabetics cannot necessarily not have sugar, it is just that like any carb they have to limit how much of it they can have.
I am guessing she would need to take a look at the diabetic exchange to see what she could limit for that day to allow for a cookie (and a small one like Elfie suggested).

And another question - was she diabetic before or does she have gestational diabetes?
