Naturally Sweet Alternative to Sugar

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Use stevia for this easy to make sugar-free version of oatmeal raisin cookies.

Don't let their name fool you; these oatmeal raisin cookies are far from ordinary. With a hint of maple, crunchy walnuts, stevia, and sweet apple juice, they're likely to disappear fast.
