I love the taste and health aspects, this is a great diabetic friendly recipe. I made a 1/2 recipe and baked it in an 8" cake pan because I was more in the mood for coffee cake. When finished i gave it a good sprinkling of cinnamon Splenda. The only thing that kept this from being 5 stars in my book was that it was too wet and ended up with a heavy too wet texture. This might have because I cut the recipe in half but it shouldn't have caused it. I will make this again but next time I'll add the liquid ingredients in increments until I have the right moisture balance instead of all at once. Made for Diabetic Awareness Tag.
