Craving something sweet?

Missing the taste of cookies or sweet maple syrup because you have to watch the sugar and fat you consume?

Try the genuinely delicious taste of these fat and sugar-free treats created by a diabetic for diabetics. Josephs Lite Sugar and Fat-Free Cookies & Syrups

Hello Fellow Diabetic,

Finding a diabetes recipe you like is one of the biggest challenges for you (or your loved one) after being diagnosed as a diabetic. It is difficult to know which ingredients can be used in a diabetes recipe. There are many, seemingly innocent, foods that can shoot your blood sugars sky-high if used in the wrong quantities.

For me, being diagnosed as having diabetes in the early 1980s was more traumatic because there just didn’t seem to be many suitable recipes around. At least none that I could find. And believe me, I searched!

Nowadays the vast array of ‘healthy-eating’ meal recipes frequently matches the needs of a diabetes diet or can be easily adapted into a suitable diabetic recipe.

And, I have a confession to make... I still have a sweet tooth; yes, I do like a sweet treat occasionally!

Tell me, why is it that restaurants seem to think a dessert for a diabetic is either a piece of fruit; a fruit salad – or worse – cheese and biscuits! Let’s face it; fruit salad gets awfully tedious after a while!

The good news! There are literally thousands of free diabetic recipes available. Many of them on the Internet.

But, to save you the trouble of trawling through looking for 'diabetes recipes' or 'diabetic recipes' or 'sugar-free recipes', I decided to gather as many recipes and websites offering abundant choices of sugar-free recipes – many of which are so delicious the whole family will enjoy them.

The list will grow as I find more good recipes and sites, so add this page to your favorite bookmarks now.

Note: If you really hate the thought of not having pastry, which normally plays havoc with my sugar levels, then you'll be interested in 'The Diabetic Pastry Chef' website. It's run by a young lady who started culinary school, to learn how to be a pastry chef, and then was diagnosed as a diabetic. I have to admire the way she decided to follow her passion whilst taking care of her health. Click here to see her recipes.

Well, the beauty of home-cooking, is you can choose one of these delicious dessert recipes specifically created for diabetics. And yes, the rest of the family will probably find them tasty as well. Enjoy!

Diabetic Cakes & Treats Recipes

A cup of tea / coffee and a nice cake. Or a snack bar, is something that people without diabetes take for granted. And, I don't know about you, but sometimes I can feel quite envious of other people being able to have a 'sweet snack' without even thinking about it. Here's a selection of snacks, cakes, cookies and others treats that you can indulge in without sending your blood-sugars sky-high.

Diabetic Miscellaneous Recipes

During my search for recipes I came across a number that really don't fit into any of the ordinary 'meal categories'. Recipes for side-salads; jams; sauces etc. So that's what this section contains. All the 'odds & sods' I really did not know how to categorise.

Diabetic Drink Recipes

A selection of refreshing drinks, some really simple - just being a blend of ingredients - others a little more interesting. The variety here includes hot and cold drinks.
