Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Seems like a lot of sugar
I also added a bit or orange flavoring. I used splenda and a sugar free brown sugar.
Not bad but alot of carbs it seems like.
Instead of the Smart Balance Butter, I used KerryGold to me it gave them a better taste to the cookies, and to even lower the sugar more I used Brown sugar Splenda mix!
awesome...I could make this for my father...
This sounds delicious, but I'm not seeing that it's diabetic friendly. At least not in any way that's satisfying. I want food that makes me feel full. One cookie would not do that for me. Carb for carb, this food is too "expensive."
These 'diabetic' cookies have half again more carbs per cookie than the other cookies recipes I've read here so far. 15g to the other recipes 10g.

And I'll never understand why diabetic recipes cut out fats. Blood sugars rise when people eat carbohydrates not butter or egg yolks.
don't make of eat this.
Carbs and wheat and oatmeal especially spike insulin which is what is inflaming our health and causing disease. Stop eating carbs including wheat which is genetically modified and oats which is a high glycemic product. STOP the madness.
The recipe states that 2 cookies equal a serving and that it serves 18. Therefore if you got 36 cookies, the nutritional analysis is as shown, Sorry, you can't divide the calories, etc. by 2 and figure each cookie has less than 10 g. of carbohydrate. Not if you're counting carbs!
Love orange flavored treats! Will try these with high protein gluten free flour instead of whole wheat and flax meal instead of the wheat germ. Here's hoping they come out tasty!
Love these gems. I used a small scoop from Pampered chef and made about 36 in stead of 18. Just halved the nutritional information.
GREAT cookies! My sister is a registered dietician and was pleased with the nutritional info, especially since I yielded 36 cookies from a single recipe, thus cutting everything down by half (smaller cookies=I get to eat more!) and my diabetic grandmother will be ecstatic to munch on these at Xmas!
Sounds like a great cookie for me. I want to add some nuts for extra protein, maybe some seeds too. It's the protein I'm looking for. Wonder what the stats would be then?
I'm an Insulin Dependent, "Tight Control" Diabetic. Thru trial, my Endo & I have determined 10 grams of carbs per unit of insulin works for me. I calculate carb intake AFTER meals w/Spark. For 5 years my A1c avg is 6.8. Diabetic for 28 yrs, I have 0 diabetic damage. 2 cookies are 1.87 units of Insln
I loved them but I changed them.I used 3/4 cup applesauce so no butter or oil was used. I subbed 1/4 Molasses and 1/4 brown sugar. They did not spread but they were great.I had no butter or smart balance but I had a fresh orange and really wanted to make these, The orange cinnamon was great.
Boy, its difficult limiting to the portion size of only ONE cookie. And two makes the carbs a bit high for diabetics. :-( That being said, this is a really good source of fiber and tastes excellent.
