Nice pies. Diabetic friendly? Recipe?

Thanks, Richard! I suppose whether or not the recipe is “diabetic friendly” depends on how many carbohydrates you’re consuming in a day. If you’re consuming under 80 grams per day, one slice (1/8) of the pie will eat up nearly 25% of your day’s allotment. Of course, you can always cut the pie into smaller slices, eat less of other carbs, and/or add additional exercise to help moderate the impact of the pie. :slight_smile:

Disclosure: This is a recipe from the November, 1993 issue of Diabetes Forecast magazine. I didn’t make it up myself, nor have I actually “fact checked” the nutrition calculations they provided. If you find an error in the nutrition facts, go ahead and let me know!
