REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I made this for my diabetic in-laws, and they absolutely loved them. I substituted the 3/4 cup of sugar for agave nectar, and skipped rolling it in sugar and cinnamon. I put the cinnamon in the dough instead. They were so moist and good. Didn't taste sugar-free at all! By far the best sugar free desert I ever made.

I got way more than 24 cookies. Very good recipe though. Good molasses flavor.

Very Good--I added another 1 1/2 cups of Oats. In total, 3 cups. (That's what a recipe with brown sugar would require too) This recipe actually make 65 cookies!! Very good, especially if you want a healthier choice!
