Blend flour with baking powder. Mix all ingredients together. Drop by tsp.s onto greased cookie sheet. (They do not spread so can be placed close together on cookie sheet.)

I am looking for diabetic cookie recipes.

Google Splenda recipes. Also read about cooking with Splenda. It is really not cup for cup as advertised.


I have found by trial and error that you can use 1/2 of what it calls for. There are plenty of recipes there. Best Wishes for your cooking adventure.

I've found that diabetic cookie recipes mention portions so small that you might as well use half whole wheat flour with half unbleached white flour, sub a little less brown sugar for white sugar and make a smaller regular cookie.
Eat slowly and figure out how to increase the fiber content (make oatmeal cookies).

This is a very good recipe! I just made these using 1/2 c Lily's stevis sweetened baking chips and butter. I didn't have stick margarine.The cookies are delightful and a good option for an occasional treat.

I would like to make cookies for our neighbor who has helped our family out tremendously in little ways. I am needing some diabetic cookie recipes to make them, since the father is a diabetic. If anyone can share these with me it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Diabetic Cookie Recipes

Here is my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe and can be made with sugar or for sugarfree use Splenda, not the sugar blend, but the other. As you will notice, this recipe also contains "no flour".

Low-Carb Peanut Butter Cookies

Mix all three ingredients with a spoon until well combined. Drop by heaping
teaspoonful or even tablespoonful on an ungreased cookie sheet. Use a fork
to squish them down to the height you like. You can make the traditional
crisscross pattern with your fork or vary it. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes.

You can decide how browned you like your cookies. Let them rest on the cookie
sheet for a few minutes before you remove them, or if they are medium rare, they
might fall apart. I like mine chewy so that's how I do them. This recipe will make
about a dozen cookies depending on how large you make yours.

I personally much prefer to use a natural sweetener, as it is much easier for the body to digest, and has no health risks due to the fact that it is natural. I use Xylitol, but there are several different ones that you can try. Xylitol is the same sweetness as sugar and has 30% fewer calories than sugar. (03/09/2008)

Do you have any recipes for Diabetic Cookies, etc.?

Jane from Richmond, B.C.


Diabetic Cookie Recipes

Any recipe that calls for 'granulated sugar' you can substitute Splenda sweetener for. This is what I use and I've had nothing but good results. If the recipe calls for 1 cup, I use 3/4 to 1 cup of Splenda. Also, if the recipe calls for 3 cups of all purpose flour, I'll use 2 cups of all purpose flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour. I don't substitute all the 3 cups of all purpose flour with 3 cups of whole wheat flour as the finished product will be coarse and dry. With this finished product, Santa will have to have the whole carton to drink with it, instead of just a glass of milk, LOL. (12/23/2005)
