I made these last night and am in Heaven. These were the most amazing moist treats that I have experienced since becoming a Diabetic. I have spoken openly about how I have lost 91 pounds now by following Dr. Bernstein’s Complete Diabetic Solution Plan. The best thing about his plan is that I have kept my A1C down and am completely without medication to control my Diabetes. That was my goal the entire time. I feel wonderful.
I highly recommend becoming a part of his community over at his message boards. He has one for recipes and I recently found this recipe there. You do have to be a member to access the recipe but it is free to join. Give it a try. What do you have to lose other than weight and bringing your A1C down?
I found the original recipe here. http://www.diabetes-book.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1148644552
Since they are not sure who the originator of the recipe was I don’t mind sharing the recipe here. But please check out all of their many other recipes and message boards for support on getting healthy. I am a firm believer in Dr. Bernstein’s plan on controlling your Diabetes.
