Along with the rice malt syrup, the recipe relies on the cranberries as a burst of sweetness.

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

**Alternative sweeteners**

- 1/3 cup brown sugar

- 1/3 cup granulated sweetener.

- add in extra cranberries

- 100g 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 become soft & taste sweeter when completely cooled.*

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