    My oldest son is a diabetic (since age 10) and now grown, his wife cooks things with Splenda for him…in fact, for the holidays she made cakes, pies, cookies and we all loved them! Just follow the recipe substitutions for the right amount to use.

    Luckily, with peanut butter cookies, you can taste the dough before you cook it. It will take less splenda than regular sugar to sweeten the dough. See if you can find a sugar/sweetener converter online. If not, just sweeten a little and taste and see if it needs more. Maybe try baking only one cookie and taste it when it’s done. If it’s good, put the rest in. If not, add more.

    noooooo…splenda will not work in baked goods like cakes, biscuits, breads….it only works if making things like custards….. you do realise that there are sugars in peanut butter and of course in the chocolate….your friend can eat one or two normal cookies, they will just have balance the other items they eat or their insulin level…….maybe try something else?….you could make banana muffins…the bananas will sweeten naturally….try carrot & apple cake…why not try a sugar free version of baklava…layers of filo pastry with dried fruits and chopped nuts or you could do them in filo parcels….sugar free options are limitless, it just takes a little imagination
