🗣 CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

"Awesome! Can't believe they are diabetic friendly!" — Laurie King

"Bought these for my husband, who is diabetic, and he loved them. Generally you can tell when most things are sugar free and the like but these were absolutely delicious and I couldn't even tell the difference." — Jaq

"Stacey!!!! You are the BEST!!!!! Everything is the GREATEST ever!!!! I am so impressed with this cookie dough and the nostalgic hand pies!!! Everything is so wonderful. You made my week. Thanks always." — Eric Weirath

"I ordered some sweet treats for a friend in Kentucky. She loved everything about them -- the pretty packaging, the presentation, and the taste. She said they were delicious and that she would buy these if they were in the store -- even choosing them over regular pastries. (She's not diabetic.) Her response was so positive that now I'm up for buying more as gifts!" — Annie Murphy

MY STORY

I was training to become a pastry chef when I was diagnosed with diabetes. Rather than give up my newfound career, I began to experiment with dessert recipes to make them more diabetic-friendly. The result is a formula I have developed and introduced in my cookbook to help readers transform almost any dessert recipe into a fantastic, diabetic-friendly version. My products are prepared in a licensed kitchen.

MISSION

As a pastry chef, my goal is NOT to have the lowest-carb products on the market, but to substantially lower the carbs without affecting quality or taste. Best of all, you do not have to be diabetic to enjoy my sugar-free and low-sugar pastries & confections!

Whether you're ordering treats for yourself or a loved one—or for a party, wedding, holiday or other special occasion—there's something here for every palate. Because everyone deserves sweets!

MEDIA

As featured in the Los Angeles Times, Diabetic Living® magazine & Diabetes FORECAST® by the American Diabetes Association® as well as on KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh, my handmade baked goods are not only appealing to the eye, but health-conscious and truly scrumptious!

Video summary: Baking is joy!

About the CEO & Author of The Diabetic Pastry Chef cookbook

Greetings! I'm Stacey Harris, also known as The Diabetic Pastry Chef.

Shortly after attending culinary school to become a pastry chef, I was diagnosed with diabetes. Mercy!

I was devastated, as I absolutely loved to bake and loved to eat sweets. I experimented with a lot of artificial sweeteners and was mainly disappointed with the results. I thought, there has to be a better way to bake great-tasting products from my kitchen that will be enjoyable for diabetics to eat. After many experiments, I developed a formula that consistently turned out delicious confections that even non-diabetics love!

GOAL
As a health-conscious pastry chef, my goal is NOT to have the lowest-carb products on the market—but to substantially LOWER the carbs without affecting quality or taste.

WHOLESOME, ALL-NATURAL INGREDIENTS
- The products sold in my shop use NO artificial sweeteners, preservatives or additives unless indicated. (An exception to this might be the decorations & garnishments on my baked goods.)
- All-natural, low-glycemic Whey Low® Type D Granular is the sweetener I primarily use in my baked goods.
- My baked goods & confections are handmade and of gourmet quality. My products are made with care from wholesome, natural ingredients of premium standard. I work from a licensed, inspected commercial kitchen.
