This oatmeal cookie recipe is diabetic friendly thanks to fruit sugar, or fructose, which you can find in any large supermarket. If you prefer regular sugar, simply use 3 tablespoons granulated sugar instead of fruit sugar.
Make these cookies and took them to work as a test not telling anyone that they were sugarfree. They were a hit with everyone. - 12 Jul 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent recipe. I used 2 tablespoons of maple syrup instead of fructose syrup. Also added more raisins...a generous 1/2 cup, 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg and cloves. Definatly will make again! - 17 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have tried a number of *sugar free* cookie recipes, and this by far is the best. I followed the recipe as is, but after the first batch came out of the oven, decided to flatten out the dough before baking, this made them more cookie than cake looking. Next time I will add another tablespoon or two of fructose, but other than that wouldn't change a thing. - 29 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
