For many people, living with diabetes means having a constant battle of maintaining proper sugar levels and weight. If you have diabetes, you should be careful with what you eat, especially when it comes to carbohydrates. Quite a few tasty dishes get automatically eliminated from your table, many of which are desserts, due to high content of carbohydrates in the form of sugar.

It doesn’t mean that you have to bid farewell to all the sweets in the world, though. For instance, if you think that just because you have diabetes you should forget about the pleasure of dunking a delicious cookie into a glass of milk, think again!

Naturally, if some cookies are made from white flour or have a generous sugar content, you shouldn’t eat them to avoid blood glucose spikes. But the world of cookies doesn’t end with traditional carb loaded creations.

There are plenty of alternatives that are higher in fiber and protein and lower in carb which you can enjoy without compromising on taste. For example, you can substitute regular refined flour with whole-wheat pastry flour, oat flour, coconut flour, or almond flour. You can also use natural ingredients with sweet taste such as raisins, bananas, and prunes. Besides, to further boost the flavor, you can use chocolate, nuts, and sugar-free syrups as well.

Here are some of our favorite cookie recipes.

Cottage Cheese and Oatmeal Cookies with Raisins

Diabetic-friendly cottage cheese cookies with raisins is a light and healthy and delicious dessert that will appeal to everyone who suffers from diabetes.
