Diabetic Cookie Recipe
Diabetes can be difficult to live with. It is difficult to monitor sugar levels, but one thing that can be especially hard is having to avoid eating your favorite sweets.
Fortunately, with increased sensitivity to those with restricted diets, there are many options for diabetics who still want to enjoy sweet treats. This diabetic cookie recipe is the perfect treat for diabetics, and anyone else who has a sugar restricted diet, to enjoy. And best of all, it can be made right in the comfort of your own home.
The secret ingredient here is the cinnamon. This spice gives the cookie a lot of flavor and helps to substitute for the sweetness of sugar which can be harmful to diabetics.
Cinnamon is a great alternative because it is all natural and it provides many health benefits. It is loaded with antioxidants and can lower the risk of heart disease.
Even better, it is known to lower blood sugar for a strong anti-diabetic effect. It has been shown to reduce fasting blood sugar levels when consuming .5 – 2 teaspoons a day.
The cookie is also sweetened by the sugar substitute Splenda to give it even more of an authentic taste.
Finding foods that are suited to restricted diets can be difficult and shopping for them can also be expensive. This recipe is easy to make and most of the ingredients are inexpensive items you are likely to already have in your own home.
All you need to do is mix up the ingredients, bake for a few minutes and serve them to your guests.
A good diabetic cookie recipe has a lot of flavor, without sugar. This one is loaded with cinnamon flavor in a soft, chewy cookie. Diabetes is not easy to live with but this treat could just make life a little sweeter.
