What is the accurate serving size? The directions say to "Cut mixture into -inch squares." so, a 9x9-in pan would mean 81 squares. Divide by 6 servings and that is 13.5 squares per serving. How do you get 24 squares a serving? How was the serving size determined?Being diabetic I would like to make this work for me accurately. I like oats. I would also like to bring down the sugar grams a bit. Anyone with recommended substitutes for some of the brown sugar and still keep the same texture and consistency? My brother has bees so could I eliminate the brown sugar and maybe add a bit more honey. Thanks to all.
