low fat margarine
packed brown sugar
5 (1 gram) packets
Acesulfame Potassium sweetener
1 1/4 cups
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.
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.
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 !!
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!
quite yummy! ..I tried mine with Splenda as the sweetner though.
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.
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!
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!"
