The best way to keep track of the sugar and carbohydrate content of your desserts is to make them yourself. You can begin your adventures in the land of diabetes dessert recipes with this recipe for scrumptious Almond Biscotti.


One of Several Delectable Dessert Recipes for Diabetes Patients


The basic ingredients for this recipe include a quarter cup of almonds, chopped finely, half a cup of sugar, two tablespoons of margarine, four lightly-beaten egg whites, and two teaspoons of almond extract. You will also need two cups of sifted all-purpose flour, two teaspoons of baking powder, and a quarter of a teaspoon of salt.

Having assembled the ingredients together, preheat your oven to the temperature of 375° Fahrenheit. Next, bake the finely chopped almonds in the oven for approximately 7.5 minutes. Keep your eye on them: When they turn golden-brown, remove them from the oven and set them to the side.

Subsequently, beat the margarine and sugar together in a bowl until the mixture is smooth. You could do this manually, but it is easier to use an electric mixer. Add the almond extract and the lightly beaten egg whites to this mixture, and continue to mix it. In a separate bowl, mix the baking powder, salt and flour. Then add the almonds, followed by the egg white mixture, into this latter bowl. Continue to mix all the ingredients until the mixture is even.

At this point, grease the bottom of two 9-inch by 5-inch baking pans with cooking spray. Divide the mixture into two portions and spread them evenly in the two baking pans. Put the pans into the oven, and allow the dough to bake for fifteen minutes.

Take the pans out of the oven, and turn the loaves onto a chopping board. After they cool, cut them into slices half an inch thick. Return them to the oven on cooking-spray greased baking sheets, bake them for five minutes, turn them over, and bake them for five more minutes. At this point, they are ready to eat.

While you can’t undo your diabetes, dessert recipes like this one will make you smile. Remember to eat right for your diabetes. Dessert recipes like this are only part of the key to diabetes management.
