  1. I don’t understand. You call it “DIABETIC peanut butter cookies”, but you’re using brown sugar? What makes it diabetic-friendly?

  2. Hi Joe-great question! When I did my cookbook with the ADA, they said it is ok to use sugar as long as the recipes fit into the diabetic guidelines which are about sodium, fat and and carbs. They have to meet those guidelines. Just because a recipe includes or doesn’t include sugar doesn’t make it automatically diabetic. Eating diabetic is the healthiest way to eat and can be a part of an everyday diet with healthy choices. If someone wants to substitute a sugar substitute, it will change the nutritional profile of the recipe. I hope this answers your question.
