The kids and I took the morning to bake together, and while treats can be loaded with sugar, I knew I would be the one putting them to bed tonight.

Baking doesn’t have to be super sweet, and I was grateful for these pantry items I had on hand for my blood sugar needs and theirs.

The Lakanto cookies and icing can either be found on Amazon (linked within the pictures) or Thrive Market.


The icing is good, especially to me and my husband, but the kids actually prefer Simply Mills icing. The latter is not low in sugar, but it is not made of canola and soybean like most commercial icings.
