I was disappointed in the flavor. I thought that they would have a lot of orange taste and would be sweet. They weren't. However, it does have possibilities. I am going to play with this recipe and maybe double the oranges and the sweetner to see if I can produce what I was expecting when I tried this one.

I've really been craving cookies since starting my diet, and these helped. I added the juice of 2 oranges and that helped a lot! Great recipe!

Your correct, these are diabetic cookies and I have not ran into many of these types of recipes that were REALLY sweet, as I know sweet. However thank you for your comment and rating.
