This should be made with unsweetened coconut instead of the regular stuff we get at the grocery store. That would help lower the calorie/carb counts.

I will try making these, using powdered cocoa (using less qty), and fresh frozen coconut. Am thinking the fresh frozen coconut might give it a sweeter taste, since shredded tends to come across as bitter. Not sure how it will affect the consistency, but gonna give it a try. What program are you guys using to plug in the ingredients? I wanna try that program. I am new at this and just learning. Might also try replacing some of the butter with unsweetened applesauce. This recipe makes me think of the upcoming fall season.

I have never heard of no sugar added power Nestle Quick, can someone tell me what that is? Is that supposed to be powder?

altbob is right. I FIGURED IT OUT!!! The nutritional info above must be for 12 DOZEN!!!!!!!

I plugged the ingredients (whole ingredients, low sugar, unsweetened/etc.) into Myfitnesspal and this is what it spit out for one dozen.

First of all, I wish people would not review a recipe until they have made it. And secondly, I want to warn everyone not to believe the nutritional info given for a recipe.

I made these cookies yesterday. They look NOTHING like the pic shown with the recipe. Personally, I did not like them. They had a very "off" taste.
When you look at the nutritional info, you think oh great, only 34 calories and 4.5 G of carbs! That is not possible If you take the total number of cookies x the per calorie listed, the TOTAL recipe would only have 408 calories.
NOW, think about the calories in 3 cups of oats, 1 cup coconut and a stick of margarine…2T of coconut has 70 calories!!!!! I am a type 1.5 diabetic who counts carbs and adjust my short acting insulin to the amount of cabs consumed. I ate 2 cookies, took an injection based on the info in the recipe, and after 2 hours, my BS was thru the roof!
I just want to say, if you post a recipe, please dont list the nutritional info unless you are POSITIVE it is correct. You do a great disservice to the members on this site. And actually, Diabetic Connect should review these recipes when they are posted!!!!
