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! :-)

Wellness Tip
Tips to Lower Sodium Intake
Have you been advised to limit your sodium intake? If so, try to eat a variety of raw, dried and frozen vegetables. Most of them are naturally low in sodium. Canned vegetables generally contain a significant amount of added salt unless the label states that it is low in sodium. Look for descriptions such as "no salt added" and "reduced sodium" on the Nutrition Facts labels when buying canned vegetables.
