Most excellent. I substituted coconut oil for butter, reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup, and used half regular oatmeal and half quick oats. So good! I can't believe there isn't any flour in this!"

Amazing. Super Good. OMG. I tried the other pulled pork recipe that called for bbq sauce. It never really broke down and pull apart with a fork.

LOVED that it didn't use a ton of sugar and butter. I didn't miss the unneeded calories. But I did find it dry. I'd love a suggestion on how to get this recipe more moist without adding butter/sugar. I used a store bought Organic Wheat pie pastry instead and thought it was great."
