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)

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.
