This is not really suitable for diabetics as it has ICING SUGAR AND HONEY. Icing Sugar and honey are particularly sweet! Even though they are in low quanities.

After a quick look at the recipe it is clear that it is not totally suitable for diabetics, as it has icing sugar and honey. Even though they are in small amounts there are safer recipe's around for diabetics.
