—Top 50 Global Diabetes Industry Leader, Expert, Author & Pastry Chef, Stacey Harris


I’m Stacey Harrisknown as The Diabetic Pastry Chef™—a Top 50 Global Diabetes Industry Leader, featured by the American Diabetes Association® and Diabetic Living®.

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 sugar-free 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!


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.

Note: At this time, I do not offer or customize gluten-free pastries or desserts.



My baked goods are made in a licensed and inspected commercial kitchen.


You don’t have to be diabetic to enjoy my delicious sugar-free pastries & confections. Everyone with good taste is welcome.

I do not make or decorate wedding or birthday cakes at this time.

As a pastry chef specializing in sugar-free pastries and desserts, I do not specialize in cake decorating and cannot ship frosted cakes.
I do offer a range of cupcakes, cakelets, cake truffles, petits-fours and other attractive and delicious cake options!

The Diabetic Pastry Chef™ Cookbook

My cookbook has been released by my publisher, Pelican Publishing Company (now Arcadia Publishing), and is in bookstores worldwide, including via online booksellers.

There is a point that I find important to address that we occasionally get asked upon first glance:

Why is there sugar anywhere in this cookbook?

The simple answer: Reduced-sugar recipes are more appealing to those who are reluctant to yet go sugar-free; some prefer to taper off of sugar. Not everyone is going to want to adopt a sugar-free lifestyle from the word jump.

Gradual steps ensure success; this cookbook walks you through your journey to being sugar-free. 

Or maybe you just want to reduce your sugar intake as a lifestyle; that is an option, too.

Further, diabetics have families; the entire family in the home may not want to go sugar-free. Maybe they’d like to support the diabetic in their life by showing solidarity and try reducing their sugar intake rather than go sugar-free.

This mainly sugar-free cookbook was written with all of the above scenarios in mind; everyone is different with different needs and desires.
