I tried these this morning. I traded out the 1 cup of honey with 1/2 cup agave nectar & they are really good. Also had to improvise the pumpkin pie spice with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves & a bit of ginger. The texture & flavor were great even though they didn't rise much. They will be a perfect present for a friend of mine who is gluten intolerant!! I also think adding raisins would punch it up a notch IF you liked them.
