These cookies are low in fructose (sugar) and can be adjusted easily to your personal taste. Simply combine or replace 1/3 cup of rice malt syrup with;

**Alternative sweeteners**
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup granulated sweetener
- 2 tbsp rice malt + 2 tbsp brown sugar or sweetener.
- 1/3 cup rice malt syrup + 1/3 cup dark semi sweet chocolate chips.
- 4 stevia/sugarine tablets, dissolved in 1/2 tsp of boiled water

(The dark chocolate chips were the most popular combination).
*Keep in mind these cookies will be soft and taste sweeter when completely cooled.*

I have not tested the recipe with golden, agave, maple syrup or honey.

    Just baked these and enjoyed the texture and the sense of them being quite a healthy cookie. They didn't have much flavour so we'll look at boosting this next time. Thank you for the recipe.
