I often have friends who are diabetic and they require a different kind of gift in a jar than I usually make for our family. I dont keep these on hand like I do the regular gift in a jar. I make these for church auctions and for friends who are not allowed the sugar. I hope you enjoy them and can adapt them to your families needs or as gifts. Sugar Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies 1 1/2 cups rolled oats 1 1/2 cup flour 1 cup raisins 1 cup splenda 1/2 tsp. salt 2 tsp. baking powder You'll need a 1 quart mason jar,wide mouth is easier to fill and empty. Mix flour with salt and baking powder. Fill bottom of the jar with oatmeal, then flour, raisins and splenda on top. Pack down ingredients after every addition. Dont forget to Attach following tag to the jar: Sugar Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl mix 2/3 cup melted butter, 4 egg whites, 1/2 cup skim milk and 1 tsp. vanilla. Add contents of jar and mix until well blended. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake 12-15 minutes. Cool on sheets for 5 minutes then remove to racks to finish cooling.

Thank you! This will make a wonderful gift for my daughter-in-law's sister, who is diabetic! Actually, they sound as if they would be really good, even if a person wasn't diabetic! Maybe just on a diet!

My mom is a diabetic and my sister in law and other various members of my family so this recipe will be great for them. A good gift for a special occasion. I have those little packages of splenda can I open a bunch till it was a cup or do I have to use the spoonable splenda that is used in baking and such? Hey these would be great little treats for people on a diet to..that is if they can stop at just one or a couple but they sound yummy.

Forget this one for gifts in a jar. I would rather make up a bunch of these to have on hand, so that the cookie making process will be simplified. Thanks for the diabetic recipe.
