I was looking for a diabetic peanut butter cookies recipe and decided to try this one. Part of flour in this recipe is substituted with oatmeal to make them low(er) carb. Original recipe calls for liquid sweetener, but does not say which one, and that makes it hard to calculate the amount of sugar, i.e. sugar replacement, needed. I used a combination of fructose and stevia, but the cookies were not sweet enough.
These cookies are pretty soft, so, if you don’t like that, try using less baking powder.

I found you on RecipeNewZ – this is a great recipe, in fact, I’ve looked at several of yours and they appear to be very tasty and yet diabetic friendly. I have a friend at work that follows my blog and I am going to send her your blog address right now. She is a diabetic and always looking for good recipes. When I bring leftovers from my blog posts in she seldom gets to have any. Now she can make your and bring them in! Great blog!
Hi, Kalamity Kelli ,
I noticed your pins on Recipe NewZ Community Board at Pinterest and I am glad that you contacted me.
I hope your friend will find here some recipe that she can use. I am still in the process of learning about diabetic food and I post as I discover something new and useful.
Apparently she did! She responded to me that she had subscribed to your blog. Yay!
Your recipe instructions mention soda in step 1, but the ingredients list does not include baking soda or its measurement. How much soda does this recipe require, if any?
Oh, sorry. You don’t need soda, just baking powder.
Just curious if anyone has tried this recipe but maybe with whole wheat flour or honey (for the sugar substitute) or maybe even sugar free peanut butter….or maybe any combination thereof?
I just made these. I used half bread flour and half white whole wheat flour, quick cooking steel cut oats, and Whey Low brown sugar substitute. Also used natural peanut butter, no sugar added, and olive oil instead of sunflower. Note, the recipe calls for 3 Tablespoons of milk but doesn’t say what to do with the milk. I added it alternately with the flour mix, and ended up adding another tablespoon. My mixture was likely very thick due to the high gluten flour and the steel cut oats. The dough turned out very thick, rolled nicely into balls, forked… Read more »
I was wondering what time of oatmeal you used to make these? Quick? Rolled? Steel cut? Thanks!
I use rolled oats and I ground them into oatmeal in a coffee grinder (you can also use blender or food processor).
