Chick-O-Stick Cookie Recipe: Diabetes Friendly

Hi Friends!

I rarely bake. But I had these lovely candies from Atkinson’s Candy Company on my counter and I couldn’t help but take a shot at whipping up some cookies using them! These cookies not only taste amazing… but they contain only 7.5g of Carbohydrates! This is a fantastic little treat that doesn’t require me to give Allison any additional insulin. Around here… we call that a “free snack”. As you can imagine… free snacks are popular.

Here’s the recipe I used. I’ve adapted a basic peanut butter cookie recipe to make it low-carb and diabetes friendly.

Ingredients:

1 cup of peanut butter (You could use low carb for this and make your treats even lower in carbs…I used regular Peter Pan)

1 cup sugar substitute (I used Splenda)

1 egg

1 tsp of vanilla extract

6 finely crushed bite sized pieces of Chick-O-Stick

Directions:

Mix all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl.

Scoop rounded teaspoons of the mix onto your cookie sheet. (I was able to get 12 cookies)

Bake on 350* for 12 minutes or until cookies have set.

Allow your cookies to cool before eating or they’ll fall apart!

That’s it!
