This is a good cookie for incorporating Grape Nuts with lower fat, and the sugar could probably be replaced with Splenda products to make it even more diabetic friendly. The Grape Nuts taste was quite pronounced, so I would include that in the title; however, if you want the fiber from Grape Nuts but can't handle Grape Nuts on their own, this is a great way to work them in. I was very pleased that Smart Balance worked well in this recipe, I didn't miss regular butter at all. Thanks for posting, smellyvegetarian! Made for January 2009 Veg*n Swap.
I actually made a double batch of these so that I could share some with a couple of neighbors who love cookies & are always looking for the great tasting, healthier kind ~ Well, this fits the bill, & THEY REALLY ARE GREAT TASTING! And, I love the inclusion of Grape-Nuts, one of my all-time favorite cereals! Thanks, much, for sharing your recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Newest Zaar Tag]
