Q: My soon to be father-in-law just got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I was going to send him cookies for Christmas but now I'm not quite sure. As a type 1 diabetic, I remember a chocolate chip cookie recipe my mother used to make — they had oats in them, almost no sugar besides the chocolate chips — but when I asked her, she informed me that she'd long ago given away the cookbook she got the recipe from.
Do you have any idea where to find the recipe I'm looking for? Or any other suggestions?

Editor: Sarah, we don't have direct experience with baking for diabetics, but we did find this recipe (pictured above) which sounds similar to what you're talking about:
• Banana-Oat Cookies from Diabetic Living
Readers, do you have other suggestions for diabetic-friendly cookies or sweet gifts for Sarah to send to her father-in-law-to-be?
