Diabetic Dessert Recipes


Just because you are diabetic, doesn’t mean you have to spend your life going from one lame meal to another. Dessert recipes can also be found at any of the websites that are listed above. One great dessert recipe that you can try is:


Raspberry Thumbprints


¼ cup softened margarine

3 tablespoons sugar

1 large egg white

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, sifted

Cooking spray

3 tablespoons raspberry fruit spread, no sugar added



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (176 degrees C). Next, in a large bowl, cream margarine and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the egg white and the vanilla extract, and then beat well. Stir in the flour in three parts. Now form the dough into 1-inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet that is lightly coated with the cooking spray. In the center of each cookie, press a hole with your thumb. After baking from 8 to 10 minutes, allow them to cool completely, and then spoon the raspberry fruit spread into the center of each cookie.


Diabetic Cake Recipes


Just because you’re at a party, doesn’t mean you can’t have a cake. Keep some cake recipes around the house for all occasions. In most instances, people don’t even notice that diabetic cakes are low in sugar until you tell them. So, try making a diabetic cake next time you have a get-together and see if anyone notices. This way you can have your cake and eat it too. Here is a diabetic cake recipe to try:
