Diabetic vegan sweets?

Hi. Please let me know if this is off-topic or if there are some relevant memories that I missed in my hunt. My granddad was just diagnosed with type II diabetes. He has made it to 92 and is relatively healthy otherwise, so having to cut down his sugar intake is bumming him out intensely. I want to make him some diabetic-friendly sweets (cookies, muffins, that kind of thing) for his birthday. I have taken a bunch of diabetic dessert cookbooks out of the library but most of them are full of eggs and dairy.

In a recipe that uses, say, Splenda to replace most of the sugar, can I just sub in egg replacers and soy milk, or is this likely to cause problems?

Thanks in advance for any tips or advice.
