I took a reviewer's suggestion to use one cup of Splenda instead of the packets - no aftertaste at all. Guilt free and healthy! Quick and easy to perpare but as she says don't over bake them. My diabetic sweet-loving old dad and I say thanks. He just finished a batch and asked me to make more and double the batch. He LOVES them and he's not easy. Read More

I know this is a low sugar recipe and if you like no sweetness at all this is the cookie for you. My family prefers a bit more sweetness. I used 5 Equal packets and it's just a bit bitter. I'll make this cookie again but only for a diabetic person. Read More

This is a terrific tasting oatmeal cookie. You wouldn't know it was low sugar. (I used equal sweetener). I am a home health provider one of my clients and also my husband are diabetics. I enjoy making special treats for them. Thank you so much!! Read More

Be careful measuring Splenda! It's lighter than sugar. Some may be misusing the Usage Guide on a box of bulk Splenda. It states 50 g SUGAR = 4 T Splenda. They then believe 50 g SPLENDA = 4 T; so 10 g (this recipe) = less than 1 T. WRONG! I've got to agree a full cup of Splenda is overkill - 1/2 c is plenty! A good light cookie! Read More

Really good - especially for a healthy cookie. I used whole wheat flour instead and only added 1/2 cup of sweetener (splenda). Can't imagine using a whole cup - really not necessary. Couldn't be bothered to chop the raisins - made for a quicker prep time. Read More

I made these twice in two days to make sure these were really that good - and they are! I used whole wheat pastry flour since it adds more fluffiness. I also used part splenda brown sugar and part regular brown sugar - did not add the packets and this was sufficiently sweet. I used low fat margarine but next time i will try half marg and half applesauce. i also used mini-choc chips instead of raisins. will make again and again! Read More

This recipe is close to a cookie that I make that my pals have dubbed the "hippie cookie" due to its healthy-ish ingredients. I was gladl to find a similar recipe to sample but my hands unknowingly grabbed at my usual additions hence the following changes/subs. (WW flour 1/4 c. applesauce to 1/4 margarine 1/3 c. brown sugar 1/2 c. Splenda 1/4 c. wheat germ and chopped walnuts.) Definitely not the most attractive cookie-cookie but oh so good out of the oven and difficult to spot that it's a better-for-you version. Husband came home snatched one up then another then another til I squawked "hey dude it's almost dinnertime!" to which our toddler remarked "save cookie for me daaaaaddddy!" Read More

Made them tonight.....substituted 1 c. Splenda for the 5 pkts of artificial sweetner. They are light and flavorful. This is a keeper/am going to try to adapt to a chocolate chip recipe soon. Read More

Simple and Great tasting! The only change I made was that I used 1/2 cup "Splenda" instead of 5 packets.Also only had golden raisins handy.I found that the time for baking was perfect.Since you need to cut time when using a artificial sweetner. Read More
