I believe Pillsbury makes a sugar-free devils food cake mix but the peanut butter chips have got to have more sugar than a diabetic should have. Could also use Smart Balance peanut butter as one commenter said about another recipe. I agree with you evaziem.

Cake mix? Are you kidding?
Not for for diabetics and those who do not want to become diabetic!

I cannot believe that this recipe is posted at Diabetic Connect web site!
Diabetic! Hello?

I know that Pillsbury makes a sugar free devil's food cake mix and I also know that Hershey's makes sugar free chocolate chips. As for the peanut butter chips, I would pass, although a bit of sugar now and then is not going to sabotage a diabetic individual. You all are aware that diabetics CAN have sugar - the key is MODERATION! I might make these using the peanut butter but for-go the "regular" cake mixes and chips and opt for the sugar free ones!

I just made these cookies and they are not only yummy but easy too. If you make them the size they are suppose to be I feel 10 carbs are great for a chocolate goodie. It hits the spot when I want a dessert and chocolate chip cookies have double the carbs if not more. It's all about finding what works for you and this certainly can be worked into my eating plan.

I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I am wondering if the devil's food cake mix mentioned is sugar free or not. If I do make this recipe I plan on using Pillsbury Moist Supreme Sugar Free Devil's Food Cake mix.

This recipe is full of additives, I was hoping for a recipe from scratch . I bought a subscription to Diabetic Cooking and got my final issue last week. Why it too is not a from scratch magazine. By eating correctly, exercising, and not eating many additives it is possible (maybe not probable) to control and from some research I've read cure type II diabetes. Recipes like this one will not help.

The description of this recipe says "hard to believe it's diabetic friendly" (? or something towards that end?) That's because it's NOT! You know, just because you opt not to list or calculate the sugar grams doesn't mean they aren't there. I truly wonder just how many people on this site posting recipes are truly diabetic or like most are "Denyabetic"?

Sugar content is 31g. You could use a low fat cake mix, and low fat peanut butter, to bring the totals down.
Could also use sugar free items, if sugar is a concern.

Sure, his name was Oscar. He was 19 when he died. I wrote a little more on the "about Me" page.
