Thanks for the response, Aniduck! You can absolutely cut down on the sugars! You might consider substituting 3/4 cup of honey in place of sugar. You'd retain the sweetness but have a more digestible type of sugar with a lower glycemic index, not to mention you cut the amount in half! Give it a try! I just made another batch for the party I'm attending this evening. Next time I make the recipe, I'll try substituting honey and post the results!

Looks yummy. I think I might cut the sugar down a bit and see what happens. A cup and a half of sugar seems like a LOT! I suppose it's the sugar that not only makes these sweet but also helps to hold them together and give texture. I will experiment.

One of the big reasons a lot of us are going grain-free is to avoid the sugars that develop from eating grains. If we add them back in we sort of shoot ourselves in the foot. But a little treat once in a while is certainly fun, eh?

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
