Xylitol Sweetener - Xylitol is a perfect replacement for traditional sugar. Xylitol Sugar has 40% fewer carbohydrates than traditional sugar. It is ideal for diabetics since it metabolizes independently of insulin and maintains a score of 7 on the Glycemic index.

Looks pretty good. Better would be to use olive oil butter as dairy butter is the highest animal food source of saturated fat. I'm using the "I can't believe it's not butter" brand of olive oil butter and it's quite good.

Saturated fat has been shown to make insulin resistance (this is what causes type 2 diabetes) worse. Splenda has had some bad press lately as previously mentioned here. The whey is a good idea as it has a reputation for building muscle instead of fat. As diabetics, we all need more muscle to help burn up excess glucose. The additional fiber is great. I like the cream but you can get no fat cream as well, it tasts just fine to me. Maybe just a little raw sugar would be better than a 1/2 cup of splenda. Whole white sugar is only 46 on the glyemic index, and that's for a whopping 50 grams. Only 4.2 grams of sugar in a teaspoon, so about 12 tsp (50 gm). is only 46 on the glycemic index. So shoot for around 2 tsp. per slice and i's not too bad for your blood sugar and the olive oil and no fat creme would help lower the glycemic load of the whole thing as well as nut flour helps a lot too. Throw in some nuts and now it's really healthy!

not using Splenda any longer. It does not break down and is now in our drinking water. Suggest others rethink the use of it as well.

Sounds very good, but way to much fat with the heavy cream and butter. Very hard to balance carbs with fat. Do not need more heart problems.

have you ever tried using coconut flour? it is very low carb and makes good tasting muffins and breads too. i found it in the .99 cent store.
