This healthy snack is not just for diabetics. It's a nice light snack for everyone. I made them for my 4-H project that I took in today to the county fair. I received a Blue Ribbon on them. Make sure you use an artificial sweetener recommended for baking.

Made these bars for my diabetic neighbour but am afraid she didn't get all of them. They are unbelievably good and will be made time and again. For us, because we are not diabetic, I put on a thin layer of lemon icing. Going to try and play around with flavors, i.e. use orange juice rather than water or maybe even apple juice. Thanks for a great sugar free recipe. None of us need the extra sugar.

This recipe is great. So often sugar-free recipes are very bland, but these bars are moist and delicious. My diabetic husband loved them, and so did I. I will be making them often.

The only bad thing is that I can't eat just one. I will add some nuts next time. And I will try it with whole wheat flour and a little wheat germ.
