We also love how Kayle substitutes sugar for maple syrup or honey. These are great alternatives because they are natural sources of sugar that are much easier for the body to digest, plus they taste delicious! If we were to recommend on over the other, honey would probably win our vote. Honey is not only a natural sweetener but it contains more vitamins such as vitamin B-6 and vitamin C. Who would of thought you could get these nutrients from eating cookies! These healthy cookies are a great recipe for any time of the year.
