Diabetic Connect does NOT recommend recipes. People on site add them. We all read them and add/subtract according to our own needs and dietary choices. Many of us don't use sugar substitutes or sugar and will adapt as needed. I hhink of this section as a resource of ideas, not as a place to find a concrete recipe.

As for the nutritional information piece, the resources for this are not available on site. Some of use other sites and formats to check our nutritional information and then add it over here when we post. Frankly, it is very inconvenient which is why, even though I love to cook, I don't post many recipes. This part of the site is not user friendly.

Jeez … this sounds like a blood sugar nightmare. Check your blood glucose after eating this to see the spike it will cause. And six tablespoons of Equal (aspartame) is asking for big trouble. Aspartame accounts for over 75% of all adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. There are 90 different documented health problems identified. Google "adverse effects of aspartame" to see them all. Aspartame is also linked to brain damage, dementia, and Alzheimer's. "Yummy" treats like this are what keeps Type 2s dependent on medication to bring down thwe rise in blood glucose that results. It is really worth it? I'm really surprised at Diabetic Connect for recommending such a dangerous recipe. I'm with INDYROY in wanting to see the nutritional analysis of these desserts. How could they NOT publish such vital info? Jim H

I would have to skip the wafer crust and just use crushed nuts as a crust, other than that I can't wait to make it!

Sounds yummy. Think I'll use chocolate quinoa cookies so I can still avoid the gluten, but the rest will work for me. Thanks for sharing this.

we're all diabetics here…so, where's the sugar content in the Nutritional facts??? With 22 chocolate cookies in it, there's
probably more sugar than you'd think. Otherwise, it sounds
absolutely wonderful.
