Low-Sugar Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Bars

This is a recipe that was adapted to be made with sugar substitutes. Being a diabetic, I find that this is a treat that satisfies the need for something sweet.


  • Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar substitute (I use Sugar Twin Spoonable)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar substitute (I use Sugar Twin Spoonable)
  • 1/4 cup light butter or margarine
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (Mott's)
  • 1 egg, or 2 egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons skim milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup white flour (or whole wheat flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups uncooked quick oats (I use Quaker brand)
  • 1-2 cups raisins
  • 1-2 cups shredded carrots or chopped apples


Heat oven to 350?. Beat sugars and margarine together. Add applesauce, egg, milk and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and cinnamon, then add mixture to wet ingredients. Mix well. Stir in oats, raisins, carrots (or apples). Spread into ungreased 9" x 13" pan. Bake 25-30 minutes.
