Hello. I am new to this forum and I have Type 1 diabetes. I wanted to share one of my desserts recipe. Don't worry! It comes under low-carb diet. I have always been ordering online custom restaurant desserts since they are made as per my choice[
]. I really love chocolate chip cookies and I wanted to eat them whenever my daughter would bake but I couldn't. So I searched such recipes which will not affect my medical condition. Thank God for those online stores for those low carb healthy desserts.
