How to Make my Peanut Butter Cookies for Diabetics!

To get that classic peanut butter cookie mark on the top of the cookie, all you need to do is use a floured fork. Press the floured fork down on the top of the dough before baking the Diabetic Peanut Butter Cookies. If you want a peanut butter cookie without flour, omit this step.  I admit that sometimes my chocolate sweet tooth gets the best of me and I toss in some dark chocolate chips.  Dark chocolate is better for you and I love the contrast with the sweet cookie.  Now, this still makes healthy peanut butter cookies!  Also, some kids don’t like the crunch, so you can leave out the peanuts and even use creamy peanut butter. Whatever way you make these peanut butter cookies for diabetics, everyone wants the recipe.

  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.
