Some of you may know my love for baking and also my love for healthy living. Well, for about a year now I've been using a natural sweetener called blue agave. It is very similar in texture to honey or maple syrup. It is much much weeter than sugar and pretty easy to use. I've started experimenting with cookie recepies! We all know how I love the chocolate chip cookie. I'm really excited about it. Blue agave does not have the side effects of sugar. My kids are so naughty if they have sugar so we don't use it at all and we try to limit the foods that have it in there. Blue agave is my new best sweetener. I'll let you know when I perfect my chocolate chip cookies. It has whole wheat, oats, wheat germ and flax seed in it! There is no sugar or white flour. They taste great! Even the nighbors love them :)

I do have to admit that they actually do taste really good, despite the scary ingredient list. They go great with lattes :)

can you send me your recepie for healthy cookies. I'm trying to find recepies using agave for family members with diabetes. I can't seem to find it on your blog. Not too good with these computers yet. Thanks, Debbie
