  1. This recipe is not Healthy at all!! 75% of people are allergic to wheat (gluten intoleratant) and canola oil is the unhealthiest of all oils. I suggest one check out websites that are under the influence of organic, research and tested by holistic, caring physcians! Also, there are healthier substitutes for brown sugar – look them up on googel!

  2. Being wheat intolerant, I would love to see these recipes with an alternate flour/ ingredients for us wheat intolerant folks

  3. I am certain if one is wheat intolerant, they know how to make the necessary substitutes.
    I made this recipe and it is delish! I did cut back a bit on the brown sugar. Adjust to how sweet the fruit is.

  4. I have now made this recipe a few times and loving it even more. It is even better with some fresh or frozen cranberries and double the walnuts or pecans.
