Great chocolate chip cookies without the sugar or sugar substitutes. Use carobe chips and agave nectar and the cookies are a great alternative.

Edible, but not great. I'm not a big carob fan though. I did substitute maple syrup for the agave nectar, and whole wheat for the white flour. They spread out a lot while baking, if I make them again I will refrigerate the batter for awhile before baking or make the bars. But overall not bad considering what they are, a very healthy wannabe for chocolate chip cookies :-)

Agave IS a sugar. I got all excited when I read no sugar or substitute and then there's a 1/4 cup of SUGAR!!!!
