*Note: I have tried it with regular flour as well and it tastes the same as with the whole wheat flour, which is better for you. -Original recipe calls for raisins and nuts, but we just use craisins. -I have made it with .5 cup of splenda and .5 cup of brown sugar. You can taste the splenda but it’s not too bad – I never have Oat bran in the house, so I just use packets of regular instant oatmeal, or the cinnamon roll oatmeal (which means that I don’t add additional cinnamon and I subtract .25 cup of the brown sugar).
