A modified recipe. The original recipe can be found in the Pennsylvania Dutch Cookbook.
The sugar substitute used no-calorie sweetener made with sucrose and malodexterin. I calculate it to have about 1/8 as many carbs as normal granulated sugar.
This is two times the recipe. Feel free to halve the measurements given.
Contains oats, which may contain gluten.
Contains margarine, a dairy product, and may contain milk.
May contain peanut butter, which is made from peanuts.
May contain coconut.
