"Excellent Oat Bars!! I agree that these are a little high in sugar to be in the healthy diabetic category, however, as Jace68138 said, you just have to be creative about it. Like for example.... use Splenda Brown Sugar instead of regular. It significantly reduces the carbs and leaves only the carbs from the oats.... which are very slow absorbing and don't "spike" your glucose levels. I am type one diabetic, and even with the recipe shown, with the regular brown sugar, I only have to add 2 units of humalog insulin for my meal to be able to indulge in one of these DELICIOUS oat bars with it! Also...when I made these, I used half semi-sweet chocolate ships, and half DARK chocolate MILDLY sweet chocolate chips....and, for melting them, I used regular old skim milk instead of condensed. It worked perfect! The dark chocolate helps to add healthy antioxidants as well. A+ recipe!"

"Excellent Recipe! I'm a big fan of banana bread as well as cherries, so this one was perfect. I used red cherries only, and I also added 1/2 cup of raisens. I used the two pan option, and baked for 40 minutes. It turned out perfect!! "
