I don't understand how these are diabetic friendly? I'm not trying to be critical, it's just that these would be loaded with sugar. My mother is diabetic and it'd be nice to make her some candy she can eat, but I would be afraid to give these to her.

This recipe comes from a diabetic cookbook. As you can see the Carbs are posted. There are 13g Total Net Carbs in ONE piece. I'm not a M.D. or a diabetic specialist. I am diabetic and on pills. This would be a "treat" for me. I would check my bloodsugar before I ate ONE and if my bloodsugar was in an acceptable range...I would go ahead and eat ONE... And recheck my blood sugar in 2-3 hours. If my blood sugar was WNL ...I'd know it was ok. Holly Clegg wrote this book. She is with the American Diabetes Association. You can always have a Registered Dietitian to check out the recipe and get her take on it. Or talk to her doctor that manages your Mom's diabetes. I am sorry...I didn't intend to mislead anyone in any way. I wish you and your Mom well. May God bless you both. I'll keep you in my prayers.
