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).
