Brown Sugar Almond Cookies
These cookies are primarily sweetened with Stevia but get their deep, molasses-like taste from a touch of brown sugar. Its flavor profile then gets heightened with almonds, which adds a satiating and toasty note to this sweet treat.
These cookies are abundant in healthy fats and fiber to provide sustained energy without unwanted crashes. Plus, with less than 8 grams of sugar per cookie, they make the yummiest mid-day pick-me-up or dessert while keeping your health goals in check. In any case, managing your type 2 diabetes shouldn't have to require completely giving up on a sweet treat - moderation is key. That's not how this cookie crumbles!
