    More cake than biscuit, I used wholemeal flour and soaked sultanas in tea for 5 mins before adding to soften. They were yummy and the kids loved them too  -  01 Mar 2015


    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.  -  02 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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 !!  -  19 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
