Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies with Less Added Sugar

This post is part of the SPLENDA® 365 SWEET SWAPS™ blogger program by McNeil Nutritionals, LLC. and The Motherhood, who sent me products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are my own, and I hope you enjoy them.

Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies with Less Added Sugar

Did you know that the average American consumes more than 22 teaspoons of added sugar a day? That’s more than TRIPLE the recommended amount for women and more than DOUBLE the recommended amount for men! That is an alarming amount but if you really think about it, it’s not that surprising. Tons of food products contain sugar, so even if you are making a conscious effort each day to pass up cookies and candy, the reality is you are still eating it in other foods. Thankfully, you can easily swap sugar for Splenda Sweetener Products to save on sugar and calories!

Splenda Sweetener Products

Ever since I started working out and eating healthier, I’ve been watching my sugar intake very carefully. I feel so much better when I eat less, but I’ll admit, sometimes I still crave sugary sweets every now and then. Before I would have caved and scooped up a bowl of ice cream, but now I opt for a bowl of plain Greek yogurt sweetened with a packet of Splenda and some fresh fruit instead. It’s super yummy and it has way less sugar!

Healthy Essentials for the Holiday Season

With the holidays in full force, there’s constant temptation to eat sweets. Everywhere you go there’s either candy, baked goods or sweet drinks. I’ve been trying to make my own treats to reduce the added sugar and calories in my recipes. I recently discovered Splenda Sugar Blend and Brown Sugar Blend and they have been an awesome addition to my recipes! They contain a blend of Splenda and either sugar or brown sugar to allow you to make your favorite recipes with less added sugar.

The other day I tried out the Splenda Sugar Blend & Brown Sugar Blend in my Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies recipe. I was very pleased with how they turned out. They tasted great and I didn’t feel guilty about eating them! Since the blends are a mix of Splenda and sugar, you only need half of what a recipe calls for. This also means each serving has half the sugar and calories!

If you’re looking for a cookie that hits the spot without all the added sugar, I encourage you to try this recipe.
