Diabetic Chocolate Chip Biscuits

Being diabetic you shouldnt eat to much sweet stuff which means chocolate and biscuits, the other day i had a craving for both and found this recipe, i made them the next day and they tasted pretty good, they end up being soft, chewy and moorish

  • 110g butter, softened
  • 12 tablespoons granulated artificial sweetener, such as Splenda
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 140g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 85g plain chocolate chips (Use chopped dark chocolate with at least 70% cacao for even less sugar, i used 60g of dark chocolate and found it loads)
  • 60g chopped pecans (can use walnuts)

  1. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream the butter till changes colour and goes soft and creamy looking add sugar substitute a tablespoon or two at a time after all sugar substitute is in. Mix in water, vanilla and egg. Sift together the flour, bicarb and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the chocolate chips and pecans. 
  3. Drop biscuit batter on tray
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from trays to cool on wire racks. 
  5. Makes around 40 - 45 biscuits
