I hearted this so I can come back and try it sometime. I haven't had a cookie or cake since I was diagnosed diabetic about 18 months ago. Even with whole wheat flour, I'd have to be extremely cautious, though. I really can't handle many carbs on my current meds and any increase would probably mean going on insulin. Will be watching to see what other recipes you come up with for diabetics.

I have a wonderful whole wheat banana/walnut bread. I aslo reworked his favorite Christmas cookies, the ones we always referred to as snowballs. They are usually made with pecans and rolled in powdered sugar, but my recipe uses walnuts, whole wheat flour, and Splenda. These are more nuts than anything else. Would you like either recipe? I'm so sorry that you've developed diabetes. My husband's situation is not so dour as yours, so he can still have whole wheat bread and even a few potatoes now and then.

2strings - I tried twice to reply to your reply, but this website just tries to "unfollow" you instead of posting my reply there. Your recipe for the cookies that are mostly nuts sounds good. I eat a lot of nuts. I'm one of those oddballs with a high metabolism, so I have a lot of trouble getting enough calories without too many carbs, and nuts is one way to pack in concentrated calories. I think I ate a whole pound of nuts in the past week - and at 5'5" I still only weigh 105 pounds!

Craftsy has become so cumbersome. My husband has the same weight problem you have - skin and bone, so I know all about the calorie shortage. If you send your email address to me at klee2strings@gmail.com we can exchange recipes and ideas to bulk up calories.

Sorry, I have no idea. I made up the recipe. My husband's diabetes is different from most. He's actually lost so much weight from the diabetes that he's trying hard to gain.

splenda is really not good for you. Do yourself a favor and use stevia. Healthy cooking.

I've heard so many things about all of these sweeteners that I don't know what to believe. What it really comes down to in our house is the fact that my husband doesn't like the taste of stevia. We use the one he does like.
