Is there any kind of recipe for peanut butter cookies that uses Splenda or any artificial sweetener?

Question by LKJH: Is there any kind of recipe for peanut butter cookies that uses Splenda or any artificial sweetener?
Thank you. My wife has been recently diagnosed as borderline diabetic.

Answer by Sew What?
Web search “splenda” cookie recipes. The texture won’t be right, A true cookie recipe is all about sugar and butter. Please note that artificial sweeteners are not really good substitutes for sugars. I know it’s probably on your wife’s list of okay foods but not a good idea because while artificial sweeteners don’t have calories, they fool your body into reacting as if it’s had sugar. And, it contributes to “sugar” cravings.

You may actually get a better result buying a “sugar free” or diabetic cookie from the health food store.

Doctors and nutritionists who stay current don’t advocate artificial sweeteners anymore unless your wife has a “lot” of weight to loose. (My doc was not one of those so I have a new one.)

Having high glucose levels is crummy. I have that too. But, I started feeling a lot better when I gave up sweets. It is not an easy thing to do. I allow myself a cheat day (usually Sunday). I make what we call the “sweet of the week,” a dessert.

Good luck to your wife. IF you haven’t visited websites for diabetics, I urge you to do that. I learned more from those folks than I did from my doctor. Not everyone who is considered borderline diabetic goes on to develop Type II diabetes.

Question by oniatario: Does anybody know of a good sugar cookie recipe using Splenda packets?
A friend of mine gave me a whole box of Splenda packets and I am thinking I can use them in a sugar cookie recipe so I can decorate sugar cookies with my daughter. Thanks for all the help, its really moving me along. This has been a big problem with my daughter since the holidays, with her wanting to decorate cookies. I will be happy to solve it in time for Valentine’s day which is just around the corner!

Do you prefer the taste of Coke, or diet coke? Yikes, unless you’re diabetic… toss it! You could try to pass it off as the real deal, probably won’t work? As a chef, I would cut the fat & calories out of other areas of my diet than dessert! Much more tasteful, huh?
