Is there such a thing as too many holiday treats? We don’t think so! But if you have diabetes, finding sweets and treats that won’t wreck your blood sugar can be harder than spotting a sleigh in the sky. We’ve shared our favorite sugar-friendly holiday sweets before, but it’s easy to get flavor fatigue when your choices are limited. That’s why we’re back with a second round of diabetes-friendly holiday treats to add another dash of sweetness to your holiday season.

Diabetic-Friendly Holiday Treat Recipes

Holiday Meringue Miniatures

These light cookie bites will melt in your mouth and look festive on your holiday table. And with just 5 calories and 1 gram of carbs in each cookie, you can soothe your sweet tooth without stress.

Cranberry Crumble Bars

Fresh cranberries, zesty oranges, and a crisp almond flour crust make these crumbly Christmas bars a truly guilt-free treat. Make a batch ahead of time and pop them in the freezer so you have a healthy holiday snack all season long!

Gingersnap Cream Cookie Cups

Gingersnaps are a classic Christmas treat, but they’re often loaded with carbs and excess sugar. These rich cookie cups taste totally indulgent, but call for sugar-smart ingredients like whole wheat flour, fresh ground spices and unsweetened apple sauce to keep them nutritious and delicious.

Light and Luscious Pumpkin Pie

Spicy, rich, and packed with sugar, pumpkin pie is a holiday staple that can fully derail your meal plan. This diabetes-friendly version uses sugar substitute, fat-free creams and fresh raw spices to create a light and luscious pie that’s full of holiday flavor.

Can’t Tell They’re Low-Fat Brownies

The name rings true – we dare you to taste the difference in these decadent low-fat brownies. Pureed prunes and a small dash of oil keep them moist and chewy, while unsweetened cocoa powder delivers a rich chocolatey taste. Don’t like prunes? Swap them for applesauce!

Sugar-Free Sugar Cookies

The hallmark of Christmas cookies without the sugar rush? It’s possible with smart swaps like a sugar substitute, unsweetened applesauce, and sugar-free gelatin. The kids will love cutting them into fun Christmas shapes, and you’ll love skipping the post-cookie crash.
