hi guys - need to ask a favour Wink

my dad is a recently diagnosed type 1 diabetic (injects insulin twice a day or so) but he really misses his sweet treats, aaah!
does anyone have any recipes for diabetic friendly cookies/snack bars/muffins that i could make for christmas & birthday hampers but also give the recipe to my parents?

thankyou so much

this recipe is rather good

and some nice recipes here

just a note though, although artificial sweetners are good on the diabetic front they can have a laxative effect, so that's something to bear in mind

no problem, one of my friends is diabetic and i always feel bad when making treats to share because he can't have any
so he gets first dibs on savoury treats (easier to regulate his sugars) and sometimes i make diabetic safe treats and don't tell the others that there's no sugar, no one can tell the difference and my friend really appreciates it

oh yes, it's all carbs, because when you get down to it all carbs are sugars (i <3 science) just that sweet things tend to contain far more per mass and so are more dangerous to a diabetic
but it's like everything else in life
All things in moderation

Usually I substitute Splenda for sugar in most recipes and bolus accordingly (also T1, but on the pump). Also, no sugar added treats such as homemade applesauce tend to be nice too, they still have carbs, but it's significantly less than the store bought variety. Some diabetics respond well to homemade low sugar ice cream, but it really depends on the person because I've also seen diabetics get really low from trying to eat ice cream and giving themselves insulin too soon (foods high in protein/fat generally release the sugar into your blood stream slower than foods high in carbs and low in proteins/fat....but it really depends on the person).
