The original recipe is an recipe from 'Pillsbury'...I have made it a "Diabetic-Friendly" recipe by making a few changes to the ingredients...however, I don't have the exact calorie or carb. counts. I think it is just as tasty as the original recipe. But there are less calories/serving and less carbs.
