Hi everyone, I am new to this site and I am hoping this will help me in preparing foods for my diabetic hubby! I was wondering if any of you know if bananas are bad for diabetics. I recently saw a recipe for ice cream that is just frozen bananas and peanut butter. Any help would be appreciated.

Not bad. Very crumbly. I'll try to make them again but use a little more milk to hold the dough together better.

I decided to use a teaspoon of table sugar instead of the artificial sweetener. That adds 16 calories and 4 carbs spread over 6 cookies. That makes each cookie have 6 carbs instead of 5. They were yummy. The dough is stickier than I expected, but I could flatten them. I didn't flatten them quite as much as the picture. But they look and taste like cookies. I appreciated that the recipe makes only 6 cookies. That's a good amount so we aren't tempted to eat too many of them or throw away the extras. I broke the graham crackers into a sandwich zip bag and crushed them with a rolling pin. I considered squishing everything inside the sandwich bag. I'll probably try that the next time.

I'm going to try these out while camping. The recipe is small so it looks like I can easily make these in my backpackers oven.

I make peanut butter cookies with just 1/4 cup Splenda, 1 egg and 1 cup peanut butter and everybody loves them! You bake for 12 mins and that's it

Sounds good but I have a short recipe for pNut butter cookies from way back and I 'm going to try it with Splenda. It's 1 cup PNut butter, 1 egg and 1 cup sugar. Mix it, form in balls…put on sprayed cookie sheet…criss cross each with fork dipped in sugar. If memory serves…bake 10 min at 350. ..or longer to brown a little.. Take out, let set before removing cookies to plate or they will fall apart. If they do, use them crumbled over fruit. :) notice? No flour.

Sounds great and very clever to use graham crackers instead of white flour… Good to have a recipe that yields only 6 small cookies too. This really looks good and is very clever. Thanks so much for sharing it with us…
