The Great Maple Syrup Quandry

Hi There!
OK, so today's dilemma was that I bought this HUGE jug of Maple Syrup but I accidentally bought the wrong kind...DARK Amber (I prefer the taste of a lighter syrup) Hmm, what to do? So I started to search for recipes in which to use all this Maple Syrup so it does not go to waste...and here's my first attempt:

A GREAT website btw!

I substituted sesame seeds for flax/chia seeds (didn't want to go out so I used what i had in the house) and I used chick pea (garbanzo bean) flour to make the cookies a good high protein snack (oats as the whole grain plus the flour as the legume source.)

Waa-laa!! They came out pretty good! Kind of protein-y tasting (in a good way) and not overly sweet (which is fine by me b/c this way I am not tempted to eat too many of them) but pretty satisfying and nice w/a cup of herbal tea!

So check out he recipe and the rest of the great recipes on this amazing website, you'll be glad you did!

Cheers (proudly holds cookie high up in air)
