Feel-Good Sugar Cookies

Is your goal to cut down on added sugar without sacrificing taste? These tasty and fiber-filled feel-good sugar cookies help keep blood glucose levels stable to help reach your diabetes management health goals. They get sweetened primarily with Stevia, a sugar substitute that cannot be absorbed by the digestive tract, meaning it won't cause unwanted blood sugar fluctuations.1

When adapting a recipe to include Stevia, be sure to follow the label directives since it tastes significantly sweeter than regular sugar. With this cookie recipe, you don't need to totally skip the dessert to keep your blood sugar levels under control. Try these feel-good cookies!
