Oatmeal Cinnamon Bars Recipe Diabetic Friendly






Today I was in sort of a baking mood. I knew I wanted to bake something but was too lazy to churn out a bunch of little cookies. You know what I mean? Cookie sheet after cookie sheet rotating them & switching them out & all that.

So what I did was I used a Sunmaid Raisin Recipe for oatmeal cookies but I made it easy on myself by forming it into one solid cookie to be cut up into bars. I used only one cookie sheet but it was completely filled & only about 1/2 thickness all over. It makes a lot of bite size bars which are great for my snack time to keep me focused!

Here's the easy recipe which since I was out of raisins I left them out & swapped orange juice & pecans. These were made with Splenda so they are really pretty healthy little bites of goodness. They are just a tiny bit sweet and a hint of cinnamon in the background. The perfect snack!

Oatmeal Cinnamon Bites/Bars

13/4c whole wheat flour
2 cups oats
2 tbsp olive oil
orange zest of 1 orange
1/2 cup orange juice fresh
2 eggs
2 tsps cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup splenda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped fine pecans

They turned out delicious. Bake at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes if you make them all on one cookie sheet like I did. Spray it of course with nonstick spray before baking. I used butter flavor spray and they taste really good on the bottoms.

I also sprinkled a tiny bit of coconut on the top of part of them so they'd have that toasted coconut flavor I love so much.

Do you make a lot of bars or do you go more for cookies when you bake? What's your favorite cookie?

  1. Another recipe right up my alley. Can't wait to try it.

    I do a mixture of both bars and cookies, depending on the occasion and how much time I have to bake. And my favorite cookie? You don't even want to know about it because it's a Paula Deen recipe.... nuff said

  2. Ha ha I know what you mean by Paula Deen, must have 2 sticks of butter at least. I don't know how she's not diabetic by now!
