Description:
This recipe is an example of how you can subsitute agave nectar or honey for corn syrup to make these a healthier choice. Agave makes a good substitute for sugar for a variety of reasons. Agave nectar is a real sugar, as opposed to an artificial or non-nutritive sweetener. It has properties similar to many sugars with one important exception: its glycemic index is significantly lower. This makes it a healthier alternative to many processed and natural sweeteners.

Ingredients:
1 1/4 CUPS SOFT BUTTER
1 CUP BROWN SUGAR, PACKED
2/3 CUP GRANULATED SUGAR
1/4 CUP CORN SYRUP (Subsitute agave nectar or honey for corn syrup to make these a healthier choice)

2 TSP VANILLA
3 CUPS FLOUR
1 1/2 TSP SALT
1 1/2 TSP BAKING SODA
1 PKG MILK CHOCOLATE CHIPS
1 CUP PECANS, COARSELY CHOPPED
1/3 PKG SKOR BITS



Directions:
Cream butter and sugars together, mix cream, syrup and vanilla in a seperate bowl. In another bowl mix together dry ingredients. Alternate adding cream and flour mixture to butter and sugar.
DROP FROM LARGE TBSP ONTO PARCHMENT LINED COOKIE SHEET. BAKE 350°F FOR 10-13 MINUTES.


ENJOY! :-)

Recipe
Delicious Tuna Salad
Category: Salads
Description: The tuna itself is very healthy; besides the fact that it's low in calories and fat, it is a great source of protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. A typical tuna sandwich at a restaurant contains up to a whopping 720 calories and 43 grams of fat. The problem with this fishy favorite is all the mayo that usually goes into it. So by choosing a Tuna Salad you avoid the mayo.
