Yes, it is possible to make diabetic-friendly lemon squares. To make diabetic-friendly lemon squares, you will need to use ingredients that are low in sugar and carbohydrates. One option is to use a sugar substitute, such as erythritol or stevia, in place of granulated sugar in the crust and filling. You could also use a low-carb flour, such as almond flour, in place of all-purpose flour in the crust. Additionally, you may want to reduce the amount of crust used in the recipe to make the dessert lower in carbs. It’s also a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian to ensure that the recipe fits within your individual dietary needs and restrictions.
