My father was diabetic and my Grandmother would always try out new recipes trying to find really tasty diabetic cookies. These ones were really good 😉

    These sound very yummy but considering all the sugar in orange juice and raisins (natural sugar from fruits is just as bad for diabetics), I’m not sure they can be considered a “diabetic friendly” food.
