How can I make cookies diabetic-friendly?

Question by LuckyGirl09: How can I make cookies diabetic-friendly?
I’m starting a small at-home cookie business featuring 100-calorie or less cookies.

I am wondering what diabetics need / don’t need in the cookies.
Maybe you have a great 100-cal or less recipe to share?

How many grams of sugar can a diabetic have per cookie?
Do they need to be low-fat or low carb?

    The lower the carb, the better. The fat-content shouldn’t matter to diabetics. Each diabetic is different, and each and every diabetic will probably give you a different number as to the carbs per cookie. For me? I’d probably only eat it if it were 10g of total carbs or less. And even then, infrequently.

    Good luck to you. Try (and tweak) this VERY simple recipe for low-carb Peanut Butter cookies.

    1 cup Splenda
    1 cup Peanut Butter
    1 large egg

    Blend, Bake (350 ~12 minutes).

    Mmm, very good and very low carb. :)

    Also, consider subbing your normal flour for almond flour or soy flour.

    Using almond meal/flour would greatly cut down on the carb counts. and using alternative sweeteners with less carbs would definitely be beneficial. calories are secondary to carb counts when it comes to diabetics.

    i’ve been baking with almond flour and it doesn’t bother my blood sugars.
