Recipe Notes

Note: You may be wondering why a sweetener, maple syrup, is included in this recipe.  Of course, it enhances the flavor, but I used maple syrup because it actually contains less sugar (1T =12 grams) than honey (1T=17 grams) or sugar and is considered low (a score of 54) on the glycemic index which is much lower than even dates! This recipe uses only 2 Tablespoons (1/8 cup) which breaks down to about 1/2 teaspoon per cookie.
