Whole Grain Breakfast Cookies
The agave nectar (sometimes called blue agave, or raw agave syrup) comes from the agave plant. It is sweeter, less processed and has a lower glycemic index (releases glucose into the bloodstream at slower rate) than table sugar. You can substitute 1/3 cup brown sugar for agave (so a total of 2/3 cup brown sugar for this recipe), and add 1 egg white. I like the consistency of the cookie better with the agave.
