Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles I
Awesome! Crispy, crunchy. These cookies have a wheaty and airy texture to them that gives them a sense of being lighter in calories even though are a cookie. My family loves them. They have become a favorite.

Blueberry-Lemon Crumb Bars
The crumb topping is a very good crumble to use over fruit in coffee cakes. My family wasn't crazy about the bars though, because the crust was a little denser than what we like. It was a crispier, denser crust, versus a lighter cake-like crust that we would have preferred.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars
Great healthy alternative to a chocolate chip cookie. Like other reviewers, I changed the corn syrup to honey and omitted the brown sugar altogether. To lower the fat, I mashed half of a small banana and used it to replace half of the butter. The banana could not even be tasted. (I used 2 tbsp. of butter and the remainder was the banana.) I probably could have used all banana and no butter and it would have been just as good. Add or substract raisins/choc. chips/ coconut, etc. as you prefer. I added flax meal too. Chewy, sweet, oaty dessert.
