Biscuits have been an essential part of the human diet for centuries. Just because you are diabetic doesn’t mean you have to stop eating them. Diabetic biscuits recipes are great way to continue eating the breakfasts that you love and have always enjoyed. Diabetes biscuit recipes are really not much different than any other biscuit recipes. The main difference is that they usually include low-fat milk or buttermilk, less salt and sometimes whole-wheat flour.

Diabetic biscuits recipes which use whole-wheat flour are particularly healthy for you. According to the Whole Grain Council repeated studies have shown that aside from reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes, whole grains reduce the risk of stroke, heart disease, asthma, inflammatory disease, some cancers, and gum and tooth loss. They also help people maintain a healthier weight, keep blood pressure levels normal, and keep blood sugar levels steadier. It is obvious that making it a practice to include whole grains in your daily meals brings about better health for you and those you cook for.

Using diabetic biscuits recipes that use artificial sweeteners are much healthier as well. Artificial sweeteners have little or no calories. So, therefore, you can lose weight without sacrificing the sugary sweets that you love. They are particularly beneficial to diabetics as they typically don’t raise blood sugar levels. They also provide other health benefits, such as the prevention of tooth decay. This is another feature you should look for when finding diabetic biscuit recipes.


Sugar Free Biscuits for Diabetic Dieters


Sugar Free Diabetic Biscuits


  • 1 egg
  • 1 large diabetic dark chocolate bar (optional)
  • 9 oz. plain white flour
  • 2 tbsp. sugar free apricot jam
  • 5 oz. butter
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat together the butter and jam, and in a separate bowl beat the egg, and then combine. Sieve the flour and baking powder into the bowl as well. Mix these well and roll the mixture into a dough. Next, on a clean surface covered with flour roll out the dough until it is about ½ a centimeter thick. Using a cookie cutter or cup cut the desired shape out of the dough. Place each biscuit on a lightly greased cookie shape and bake them for 12-15 minutes or until they turn a golden brown. For added flavor, melt one or two squares of dark chocolate per biscuit and spread over each. Allow the chocolate to harden. This brings about a nice touch, if desired.
