So, these are sort of low carb… or should I say healthy carb, not low carb. I would not recommend eating many of these if you are on a strict low carb diet. However, one or two would not hurt every once in awhile. There is no sugar added to them, which makes them healthier, plus it is all good carbs. You just don’t want to over indulge in those either if you are shooting for weight loss, or at least according to the diet rules you shouldn’t.

1/8 cup splenda brown sugar blend
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup oil

They were good. Almost too good. In fact I had to toss some out because I was having a hard time limiting my carbs. But if you are dying for a treat or a chocolate chip cookie these are much better than the alternative. There is no artificial sweetener aftertaste, thank goodness. I really don’t like the taste of Splenda. Luckily these tasted great.
