I'm new to this, and maybe just not the most well-rounded cook. (but I love to cook) anyway, what's AGAVE?

Also, thanks so much for the great ideas, can't wait to try some!!!
Agave is a natural sweetner derived from a cactus plant. It looks a lot like honey. It has a low GI and no after taste so its great for SB. You can get it at most health food stores or order it on-line.

I went grocery shopping and found the Agave. Made the cookies, YUM!!!!!
Thanks for the recipe!
Glad you liked the cookies Kim. biggrin.gif
