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!!!!

@ mgutterson: I would suppose you could use the cocoa, but the SF Quick would have sweetening agents of some kind in it, so you'd have to play with fhe mix to get the right sweetness. Otherwise it might be slightly bitter.
