Expert Tips For These Perfect Diabetic Oatmeal Cookies

  • Brown Sugar is essential. For the ultimate experience, these diabetic oatmeal cookies need to have brown sugar Swerve. If you go with white sugar, they won’t have that deep caramelized flavor. 
  • Don’t overbake. Baking the cookies too long will make them dry and hard. For soft cookies, take the pan out of the oven as soon as the edges start to brown. The middles will still look soft but will finish baking on the pan. 
  • Don’t move the cookies early. Let the cookies rest on the pan for 5 minutes before removing them. Then finish cooling on a wire cooling rack. This will give them time to set up. 

What Can I Add To Oatmeal Cookies?

  • Chocolate chips – reach for your favorite sugar free chocolate chips to keep the cookies diabetic friendly. Or if you are okay with a little sugar, go with regular chocolate chips.
  • Nuts – Walnuts and pecans are both tasty options. Chop them up and add in ¼ – ½ cup of your favorite nuts.
  • Cinnamon – To add a little bit of spiciness, add a dash or two of ground cinnamon. So good!
  • Raisins or Cranberries – Both will add a little more sweetness to the cookies and a fun texture. Don’t add more than ½ cup, so they don’t become too bulky.
  • Butterscotch chips – Oatmeal and butterscotch make a heavenly combination! So incredibly delicious. 

Can I Make Diabetic Oatmeal Cookies Ahead?

Yes! Bake as many batches of the cookies as you want and allow them to cool. Once they have cooled, place them in a sealed, airtight container. Store at room temperature for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months. 

Additionally, you can prepare the dough and place it on a cookie sheet. Freeze the cookie balls for 2 hours, then place in a freezer container. Add 2 minutes to the baking time and enjoy!
