Lately there has been some controversy about the use of agave. I am on the fence and may give it a rest once I finish my stash. At the moment I am using Organic Raw Agave minimally.
Elana has also been getting some feedback from people concerned with using Agave. So she came up with this recipe below to substitute the Agave. I have never tried Yacon but I think I will look in to it and give it a try. Here is the recipe that she has on her website for these cookies. Since I am always trying to cut sugar, excessive amounts of oil and a little salt, I will show you the changes I made in the recipe below in red. I have to say the cookies still turned out incredible!
