If you are looking for a great tasting sugar free cookies for diabetics here are good recipes. My fiancée, his mother and his daughter are all Diabetics, we count the carbohydrates in each meal or snack to determine how much medicine they should take with that meal or snack. If a diabetic does not slow down on their sugar intake they can seriously damage their bodies. Living snack free is pretty much impossible, especially for kids.
Carbohydrates inside of foods turn into sugar inside the body so it can be quite a challenge to find carb/sugar free cookies at the store so I have tried for two years now to make some sugar free cookies that actually taste good too. With four kids in the family sugar free cookies were at the top of my list of snacks. These have been tested and approved by some pretty picky kids, give one of them a try and see what you think.

Tip: Sometimes you can simply replace the sugar in a recipe with Splenda sweetener. It bakes just like sugar with out the sugar. I was very skeptical at first but it works great. The recipes may still have some carbohydrates in them but far less than if you use regular sugar in them. Some Carbohydrates are good but sugar is not one of them, it makes the blood sugar in a persons body spike up and then drop very quickly, which is not good for a Diabetics system.
