6 Diabetic Dessert Recipes You’ll Love

Diabetic dessert recipes are something you’re hearing more and more these days. With diabetes affecting almost 10% of the world’s population, it’s likely you know someone who has Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. You may even have it yourself. As a rising issue, it has become more and more common to see sugar-free items available in grocery stores and marketplaces to help out those who suffer from this autoimmune condition.

Even with all of these products, it’s sometimes hard to find something to calm your sweet tooth while ensuring your sugar count is staying in a safe range. Diabetic or not, sugar intake is something we all try to stay conscious of, isn’t it?

But just because we’re watching our sugar intake doesn’t mean we have to succumb to a life of bland, boring foods – especially when it comes to dessert! There is a wealth of incredible recipes out there for diabetics or those who are watching their sugar consumption for health reasons. It may seem like a difficult feat at first but you’d be surprised at what delicious creations you can cook up without using sugar at all. 

Now, you’re probably skeptical. How could a diabetic dessert possibly be the same without the surefire sweetness of sugar? Well, just wait until you see the recipes we have to share with you today! These diabetic desserts are so delicious, you’ll never know they are sugar-free! These genius cooks have mastered the tricks of the trade and by using natural sweeteners like applesauce or sugar substitutes have created some of the most delectable dessert recipes that diabetics and non-diabetics alike will love!

Sugar-Free Nutella Brownie:

This diabetic dessert has us sold at just the mention of Nutella. Did you know they have it available in a Sugar-Free form? It seems impossible to retain the rich, delicious taste of the original Nutella without the sugar but somehow they managed to bring this miracle to life.

The recipe only has 3 ingredients and it’s likely you already have them in stock. You’ll definitely need a mixer for this one though as it calls for whipped eggs and this step cannot be skipped. With a mixer, it’s a cinch and takes no time at all so don’t worry! This brownie gives you the best of both worlds with that creamy Nutella flavor without the pound of sugar that usually accompanies it.
