    I added just a few diced dried cherries I had on hand, not too many because of not wanting to increase the sugar content of the recipe too drastically. I agree with others that adding a few mini choc chips or chopped walnuts would be a good idea. Overall, a good diabetic snack. I would definitely make again.

    I have not made these yet but my question is how can I substitute the Splenda. I don't use artificial sweetners because they give me migraines! Can I just sub applesauce and if so, how much?

    I stumbled onto this recipe a couple years ago. It has been a favorite snack since the first time I made them. Like other reviewers I like them a lot. I often have more than two or three and they do not spike my glucose. For variety, I sometimes add sugar free chocolate chips and/or chopped walnuts. I have to hide them from my kids because they like them as well.

    Looking forward to trying these and I know I could figure this out myself....but where is the "Sugar" content on the Nutrition Facts label? Thanks!

    These were great. I used 2 bananas, 1 frozen one may have been enough, more to come next time on that.Plenty moist for me. I used almond four since I didn't have the flax. Added 1/8 cup mini chocolate chips. Yumm. I will definitely use this recipe again.
