    I made this in the full fat version with sugar instead of Splenda & it was heavenly! I will definitely be making this again. This recipe is suitable for those on a gluten free diet.

      Splenda is an artificial sweetener which is harmful for the body. As a matter of fact regular sugar is healthier and more safe. I wish more people would realize the consumption of artificial sweeteners including aspartame, Splenda, equal, diet coke, etc. can do damage to the brain and body. There are better alternatives to sugar which include agave nectar, stevia, and raw honey (which should not be heated or used in baking)

    Where did the 7+ grams of fiber come from- is there a fiber one crust?

    • This recipe was calculated using splenda which has about 1 gram of fiber per teaspoon, that is where the fiber comes from.

    Some of us diabetics use Splenda to keep from spiking our blood sugar. We low carb and while this has more carbs than I would like, you sometimes treat yourself on Shabbos.

    If you drink soda and want to stay away from Splenda which is aspartame, drink Diet Rite Cola, perfectly kosher and the only diet soda we can find that has NO aspartame.
