Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies Made with SPLENDA
Did you know that the average American consumes more than 22 teaspoons of added sugar per day? Shockingly, that is more than triple the recommended amount for women and more than double the amount for men! I know in our home, I try my hardest to limit the amount of sugar I feed my family. With the holiday season in full swing, that can be really tough!
Since the nature of the holiday season is just so sweet, I was more than happy to substitute both the white, and brown sugar in my Ooey Gooey Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies with SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener. I received plenty of SPLENDA® products in to sample so I was excited to see if my family could tell the difference when I replaced the traditional sugar with this great tasting product.
Did my #SweetSwaps work?
Honestly, I prepared my Ooey Gooey Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies recipe as I normally would with the exception of the white and brown sugars. Since the conversion between conventional sugar, and SPLENDA® is a bit different, I used the Sugar-to-SPLENDA® Sweeteners Conversion Chart. I was pleasantly surprised that my cookie texture did not change and boy did they bake up nicely!

I’ve been seeing more and more from Splenda lately. We do a lot of cottage sales baking from our house, having a lower calorie option might e a good thing to consider adding to our menu,
I never thought to use Splenda, hmmmm maybe that will be a good switch for us in our baking. Will look into buying some next shopping trip! This recipe looks scrumptious!
Nancy @ Whispered Inspirations says
Oh wow, they look so moist and you used Splenda. Incredible! I love the low-sugar option.
I tried making these, and I’m not sure which factor did it. Maybe it was because I used quick oats instead of whole oats, maybe because I added in cocoa, maybe its because I had to sub a tablespoon of chia because I only had one egg (oops) but my original dough was far too dry to work with, so I ended up adding in chocolate almond milk until it was workable (about 1 cup). They didnt really end up flattening out like cookies when I baked it so I ended up with a happy and tasty accident I am going to rename “Dirt Balls” :P
Sounds like a good creation! At least it turned out ok! Quick oats are better for no bake stuff and could have been the culprit!
Can I use monk fruit sugar instead of Splenda?
Hi Lisa, You can! I would use a little less though!
Hello, thank you for sharing this recipe! At first, I thought 2 tbs of vanilla!? While I thought it was too much, they tasted really good. My family enjoyed them a lot. did add salt flakes on the top of them, which made them pretty good.
