Tasty We are a family of diabetics. I used sugar free maple syrup and Splenda brown sugar in this recipe. It is delicious. Probably better with the real stuff but good with sugar free ingredients too. Will make this again. Pros: Simple to make Cons: None Read More

Ideal for all ages and calorie counters I love this recipe! i use whole wheat flour and coconut oil instead. i cut back on the brown sugar (1/4th)too and add a little more pure maple syrup (sent from canada!:)) It pairs exceptionally well with vanilla or butter scotch icecream. Pros: walnuts! oats ginger pears and raisins are great for you! Cons: a bit too many things! Read More

Also only had quick oats but it all came out really good! Pros: easy delicious basic Read More
