Delicious Diabetic Friendly Recipes

Your food choice really matter when you're diabetic, so it's important that you're aware which foods to avoid if you're diabetic.

Depending on what type of diabetes you have - you should completely avoid certain foods or limit yourself to particular foods. There's nothing you cannot eat if you have type 2 diabetes, but you'll have to limit certain foods.

Here at The Skinny Food Co, we've made it our mission to provide great tasting foods that cater to all individuals, including those diagnosed with Diabetes.

So, we thought we'd complied a list of delicious recipes that are diabetic friendly! 

Diabetic Waffles 

Chocolate Cookie Dough Waffle

This gorgeous treat is perfect for your date night, and in typical Skinny Food Co fashion uses Zero Calorie and low sugar products and can be enjoyed by everyone. We've used some of our best-selling chocolate products as well as a product from our bakery range - perfect for some at home baking! 

The Bubble Waffle Maker we have used to create this is available to buy straight from our website along with many more great kitchen appliances! It's so easy to use and creates perfect golden-brown waffles every time.


1/3 pack of SFC Edible Cookie Dough (made up to packet instructions)

100ml low calorie cookie dough ice cream

15g SFC Chocaholic Hazelnut Spread

20ml SFC Chocolate Flavor Syrup

5g chocolate chips 


1. Following the instructions on our SCF Edible Cookie Dough mix, make up 1/3 of the mixture for the base. 

2. Spray the Waffle Maker with Oil - we've used SFC Sunflower Oil Spray, at only 1 calorie per spray! Place the mixture into your waffle maker and cook for 2-3 minutes each side. 

3. Top with 100ml of the low calorie cookie dough ice cream and drizzle over  some of our favorite Chocoholic Hazelnut Spread.

4. For extra chocolatey goodness, we've also added 20ml SFC Chocolate Flavor Syrup and 5g of chocolate chips.

Diabetic Flapjacks 

Jammy dodger flapjacks

These jammy little flapjacks are an absolute delight! They taste so incredibly delicious but they are so much lower in sugar than a regular flapjack! Our low sugar Chocolate Chip Flapjack Mix is the star of the recipe and we top it with our epic low sugar White Chocolate Chocaholic Spread and low sugar Raspberry Jam - two of our favourite products!  



1. Preheat your oven to 160 degrees fan and line a square baking tin with baking paper

2. In a large mixing bowl, add your Flapjack Mix, milk, oil and Salted Caramel Syrup and mix until fully combined

3. Pour your flapjack mixture into the lined baking tin and spread evenly to the edges

4. Bake your flapjacks for 9-10 minutes until fully cooked and starting to go golden in colour

5. Allow to cool slightly before spreading over the White Chocaholic Spread and then swirl through the Raspberry Jam.

6. Now add a mini jammy dodger to the middle of each flapjack 

7. Cut into 9 pieces, serve and enjoy!
