💭What are the best cookies for diabetics?
The best cookies for diabetics are those made with sugar-free or low-sugar ingredients. Look for recipes that use alternative sweeteners such as stevia, erythritol, and monk fruit.
These natural sweeteners have a much lower glycemic index than regular sugar so they won't spike blood sugar levels. Other ingredients such as nut butters, coconut oil, and flaxseeds can also be added for flavor and nutrition.
