EatingWell reader Beverley Sharpe of California contributed this recipe. She updated a favorite treat by cutting back on sugar and incorporating whole grains. To increase protein, she replaces the rolled oats with 1 cup almond meal.
1/4 c ground flax seeds
did not use all whole wheat, I used 1/4 c whole wheat and 3/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup of butter and 1/4 cup almond butter
and 1/4 cup of honey in addition to the sugars
did not use any canola oil either
I followed the recipe but also added 1/4 cup ground flaxseed and 1/4 cup of chopped pecans. I will definitely be making these again!
I used Agave Nectar instead of the sugar and they aren't worth the calories to eat. Maybe they would be better with real sugar but I wouldn't serve these to anyone. I won't recommend this recipe to anyone
I did substitute applesauce for canola oil so maybe that was the problem but I wasn't impressed with this recipe. It was okay, but lacked flavor. I wouldn't bother making them again.
