Oatmeal Cookies

I made these a week or so ago with Sugar Twin Granulated Brown sugar and they were alright, but has a really weird taste to them. So I found my own brown sugar substitute recipe (1 cup granulated sweetener and 1/4 cup sugar free maple syrup = 1 cup brown sugar sub.) and these ones turned out fantastic! They taste so good you can hardly tell they are healthy! This is one of my favourite Low GI recipes so far!

2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
3/4 cup whole wheat flour (I used 1/2 almond flour)
1/2 cup wheat bran
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 cup brown sugar substitute
1/2 cup non-hydrogenated soft margarine
1/4 cup liquid egg (I just used 1 whole large egg)
1/4 cup water
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup dried currents (Lets be honest, currents are gross so I used semi sweet chocolate chips, but only a 1/4 cup) OPTIONAL

1. Preheat oven to 375 F
2. Mix oats, flour, bran, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in medium bowl.
3. In a large bowl, beat the brown sugar sub., margarine, egg, water and vanilla. Slowly add oat mixture to bowl and mix until combine. Add currents chocolate chips and stir to combine.
3. Spoon onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper and flatten slightly. Bake until firm and golden, about 8 min. Let cool on rack!

They freeze well!
