    frugalfanny - I'm like you...I bake but its just my dad and I that eat them and we don't eat sweets very often so the baked goods will last eons lol.

    Palooka - those bars sound yummy and it uses whole wheat flour! I'm debating on making those for April's challenge

    Oh --I COULD get rid of all of it.........with no problem.........but I don't need it.........and the sad part is I love to bake. My favorite is trying new things but I have so many picky 'victims' that I have to even watch that.

    OMG hahahaha - frugalFRANNY!! I'm sorry lol

    Palooka - do you make them as the recipe listed or have you tweaked it? The one review said it was doughy...thats one thing I don't like/want and then another review was using apple sauce to make them chewy. Not sure which route I should try if I do try.

    I've never made them but this recipe could sure be tweaked. I would use the banana for the fat replacement and not the peanut butter.

    Oh, my bad. I was just talking general that I have peeps in the house that eat up baked goods. I should have used the quote button. It was a response to you and FF.

    Ok...so for April's baking challenge I made 100% whole wheat almond & cranberry biscotti cookies. They didn't turn out as well as I had hoped but are still edible. The recipe I used could've used more almond flavoring and more sweetness. I did sub Splenda in for white sugar.

    I need to re-make the biscotti again with my tweaks as well as my zuc bread from last month but I think my dad used the last of my zucs the other night for dinner!

    They look yummy. How much Splenda did you use?

    Thanks Palooka! I made them mini on purpose as well...so you can eat 3pcs and not feel guilty! I think they're about 1.5" long?

    Original recipe said 1/3c sugar and as per the Splenda directions: use half in Splenda what the recipe calls for in regular white sugar.

    I think I'm going to use the whole 1/3c of Splenda b/c honestly it tastes like over dried bread nuggets with chunks of cranberry & almond slivers in it. Can't taste the sweetness til you hit a cranberry. I need to ramp up the almond extract as well.

    I love almond extract. Really didn't know how yummy it made things taste until I bought a cupcake cookbook.

    I think Splenda can really be tricky with baking.
