Here is a great bar recipe for a special treat. Remember to make it a samll serving or maybe after you've worked out.
Pack these for an on-the-go treats for a summer's day picnic. Be sure to provide fruit and water on your hikes. These are also good for those summer time potlucks.
These can be stored in containers for a week.
I find these quick and easy to make when I'm really busy. Be sure to read the labels of 'sugar free' products sometimes the carb count is higher than the regulare product. Learning to read the labels will make you aware of what you are eating and how it affects your diabetes.
Pack these with oven baked chicken and beans for a healthy picnic lunch.
