Just in case you didn't know this, don't use aspartame as the sweetener in anything that will be cooked. It decomposes when heated.
Anyhow, no I've never made those. Sounds like a basic unleavened flatbread made from oats. You didn't mention how much milk you used. How was the texture? I'd expect them to be kind of chewy given the recipe. My personal preference would probably be to add some flour and baking powder, to turn them into something more like oatmeal pancakes.
I used one cup of milk. I don't have any sugar or any sort of flour not baking soda. Next time I'll use honey or molasses, some oat or barely flour, etc....
I'm suprised I didn't burn any of them, one old man I gave one to, enjoy it. This being Summer I don't want to turn my oven on, which is why I'm using my stovetop. Since Ashcakes are the oldest forms of flatbread, which were cooked on either on white hot ashes, the hearthstones,or if they were lucky, even a metal plate or flat pan of some sort.
