  • Diabetes-Friendly Halloween Recipe


    Don't be frightened by the thought of a sugary Halloween celebration. When you have to eat to support blood sugar, that means that you always have to have the right balance of healthy eating tricks and treats. 

     


    A cure for your sweet tooth! These aren't really macaroons, but your taste buds may think so. With a great combination of sweet, tart, and crunch, they'll be a trick-or-treat favorite. 

     

    Ingredients

    • 1 Tbs unsalted butter

    • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

    • 1/4 cup almonds

    • 1/4 cup walnuts

    • 1/4 cup pecans

    • 2 1/2 cups bran flake cereal

    • 3/4 cup dried cherries

    Directions

    • In a food processor, chop the almonds, walnuts, and pecans until they are finely diced, set aside.

    • In a microwavable bowl, melt 1 Tbsp of butter and add the chocolate chips. Microwave for about 30 seconds or until fully melted. Stir to combine.

    • Gradually stir the bran cereal into the chocolate, mixing thoroughly. Add the nut mixture and dried cherries until fully combined.

    • With a spoon create 1-inch balls and place them onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

    • Place the cookie sheet in the fridge and let set for about an hour.
