About The Ingredients

Almond FlourAlmond flour is just ground almonds. using almond flour helps to significantly reduce carbs. Look for a very fine grind. You want the almond flour to be as powdery as possible.

Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips– Use Sugar-Free chocolate chips that are made with stevia or other calorie and carb-free sweeteners. Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips are available in different flavours. Choose what you like. Remember, dark sugar-free chocolate chips will not be as sweet. A typical non-diabetic Oatmeal Chocolate chip cookie traditionally uses semi-sweet or milk chocolate. Choose the flavour that suits you, but keep them sugar-free.

Splenda Granulated Sweetener – The sweetener that you use needs to be zero calories and zero carbs. If you have a sweetener that you prefer over Splenda, feel free to substitute. I often use a Splenda Stevia Blend or Splenda brand. Keep in mind that some sweeteners contain sugar alcohols and are used in many sugar-free recipes. Sugar alcohols negatively affect my blood sugar. That is not everyone’s experience, but it is important to be aware of the different sweeteners.

Brown Sweetener – I always use Sugar-Twin brown, but that is not available everywhere. there are brown sugar blends, that are available in-store. Brown sugar blends contain carbs. they are not zero carbs. Some brown sugar blend sweeteners contain the same amount of carbs are plain brown sugar. Read the label when choosing your brown sweetener and make sure you account for increased carbs in your nutritional info per serving.

Butter – I always use salted butter in my cookies (many people disagree). If you are using unsalted butter, make sure that you add an extra pinch of salt to make up for the loss of salt.

Rolled oats -I like large oat flakes, but whatever your preference works in this recipe. I find that larger flakes result in a chewier cookie.

Molasses Dark molasses are best for this recipe. This will also help with making up for the lack of real brown sugar in this diabetic Oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe. Real brown sugar contains molasses, which is why you see it added to this recipe.

Vanilla Extract – The purpose of adding vanilla extract to baked goods recipes and frosting is as a flavour enhancer. If you don’t have it, you can leave it out, but I recommend adding it. When you are baking diabetic-friendly recipes, adding anything that helps to boost the end result is worth adding.

The reason I use a baking stone for baking cookies.

Ever experienced the frustration of making a great cookie recipe, only to have it burn? All that work and product wasted! Ever since I switched to using a stone for baling cookies, I have not had another burnt cookie. I’m a huge fan of these. Using a baking stone, will make your diabetic Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe a success. When I got my first baking stone, I thought the sales pitch was just a gimmick, but it was true. Who knew?

My baking stone has been a part of my kitchen for 15 years. Over time baking stones become discoloured and feel a little oily. I have one that is dedicated to baking cookies only. The stone absorbs oils from the cookies into the stone, causing the discolouring.

When you use a baking stone, the first bake may take a couple of minutes longer than the subsequent bake. Once the stone is warm the cooking time is reduced.

Let your stone cool fully before washing, to avoid cracking.
