Choosing recipes can be difficult when you are a diabetic. We have compiled a few of our favorite sweet treat recipes for people with Diabetes. Hopefully you will see one that you can enjoy.

Mini Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce:

To create this recipe, you will need a cup of non-fat milk, a single egg-white, one teaspoon of vanilla, one cup of all purpose flour, one and a half teaspoons of baking powder, a pinch of salt, a pinch of cinnamon, a teaspoon of olive oil, and half a cup of low fat yogurt. To make the strawberry sauce, you will need a pint of frozen, unsweetened strawberries, half a cup of water, a tablespoon of granulated sugar, and two teaspoons of cornstarch.

The first step to making this recipe is to bring the strawberries, sugar, water and cornstarch to a boil in a sauce pan over medium to high heat. You only need to cook the sauce until it has thickened, which takes about a minute. Next, you will want to beat the milk, vanilla and egg white in a bowl. Add the flour, salt, cinnamon and baking powder and beat the entire mixture until it is well blended. You only need a small nonstick skillet, which you should heat until water sizzles freely within it. Brush the skillet with oil to keep the pancakes from sticking. Pour two tablespoons of battle into the skillet for each individual pancake, and cook for a minute before flipping over for thirty seconds. Once the pancakes are cooked, spoon the strawberry sauce over the pancakes and garnish them with the yogurt.

The Diabetic Exchange per Pancake: 1 Starch, ½ Milk, 1 Fruit/Vegetable.

Creamy Peach Omelets:

To create this recipe, you will need an 8-ounce package of low calorie cream cheese which has already been softened, eight eggs, a pinch of salt, two packets of artificial sweetener, a quarter cup of heavy cream, two tablespoons of diet margarine, and half a cup of peaches mixed with two packets of sweetener into a blender.

The first step to making this recipe is to combine everything except for the peaches and margarine into a bowl. Beat the ingredients until they are smooth, and then pour the egg mixture into melted margarine. Cook the mixture over low heat in an omelet pan, until the eggs have begun to set. Loosen the eggs with a spatula, then tilt the pan allowing the egg to spread to the sides of the pan. When the omelet’s center is firm, spoon the peaches into the center and carefully fold the edges of the omelet into the center.
