    Sam #3's Note:

    Take from the Healthy Cooking Sugar Free Cookbook. Fruit biscuits are always a firm favorite and do not need any added sugar when made with plenty of fruit.

      Simply delicious! . I made a 6 serving amount and used my biscuit cutter and they raised very well. I just loved the sunflower seeds, the crunch is great. My only change was to use a more heart healthy margarine for the butter and I added a rounded Tbsp of Splenda (just for personal taste). A real treat for Easter weekend and lovely with vanilla coffee :D.

      What a wonderful breakfast biscuit! So fruity yet not overly sweet! I substituted cinnamon for the ginger but other than that followed the recipe exactly and my biscuits turned out perfectly! Thank you very much for sharing these, Sam #3. Made for PRMR February 09.
